Q-talk 121 - Building Tip, Forming shapes with screen mesh

I have included a couple of pictures of a technique I learned that other builders may want to use. It uses cardboard to create a desired shape. Then uses the cardboard to create a smooth contour by hot gluing window screen mesh to the desired places. You then trim the screen with a fast grinder. Once you get the desired shape, squeeze wet flox into the screen and apply a layer of bidover the flox before it dries.
