In an attempt to emulate icicles I used poly cement model glue and dripped it down clear thread. I think the effect worked pretty well.

Thank you to those of you who’ve contributed.

  1. Nice effect!

    Heh. In the film industry, we use hot glue guns to create spider web. The trick is to blow a concentrated air stream below the nozzle which spews out the hot glue in gossamer threads. Very effective.

    I wonder if something similar might work for icicles? Though, I suppose, you’d be exchanging sticky fingers for singed ones. ;)
