Thread: Giant Clam Shell Prop

  1. #21
    Maybe attach a decorated, big umbrella to some kind of base? It would have the general shape you are looking for, even without major modifications.

    I have a couple of friends who use 'giant clam shell' props for various stage acts and they use kids paddling pools - this is the kind of thing I mean. You could probably get bigger if you looked for them at a toy store or somewhere like that?

    It looks pretty naff as it is but I think the girls I know who use them sand them down or something to remove the shine off the plastic then they spray with pearl effect spray paint (it takes a couple of coats) and spray paint - add drapes of soft pink fabric to the inside and you're good to go

    You can probably use this pool for a mould too. And useable plaster or something light weight and sand down that harsh corner where the side meets the bottom to make it round

    Kind of amazing, I have to agree

    I liked how she has a pearl to go with her clam, and there's a shelf it can sit in in the upper shell.

    my husband happens to have a giant plastic clam shell in the attic I want to dig out and make into something.....but that blowup one was adorable! I bet you could make one super cheap! I'd dig out a negative space in the dirt in the backyard in the wave shape of the scallops and just pour something in there to make a cast.

    yeah, we have talked about buying a wheelchair and modding it to take to cons before. I also wonder if I could put the seashell on a wagon or something...

    this would be lovely The Finfolk girls had a giant clam built for one of their Renaissance fairs. And here's a link I found where you can buy one of those clamshell kiddie pools. http://www.windmill.net.au/active-pl...and-water-clam
