If you ever need to create a vacuum but can’t find a vacuum pump, there’s a neat trick you can use in order to turn an air compressor into a vacuum pump, using only cheap and easy materials. As this video from GREENPOWERSCIENCE, this technique can also be used in order to spray liquids even if it contains particle that would be to big for any normal sprayers nozzle. GREENPOWERSCIENCE Used this very technique to turn styrofoam into spiderweb and you can watch how here: Recycle your styrofoam!
Do you, like most of us, have an ever-increasing pile of small transparent plastic bags? Too small and flimsy to be of practical use right? Wrong! Those bags can be used as an excellent DIY material! In this video from Barrett Sanders we get to see how easy it is to make cool jelly fishes out of them, but we bet you could find many other uses for those tiny bags if you just put your mind to it. What could you make?
In a previously added video (Inflatable Bag Monsters!) you can see that ordinary plastic bags and garbage bags can be used to make balloon like art that moves around, but how can you weld all those pieces of plastics together? Well its extremely simple, as this video from ThreadBanger (Man Vs. Pin) shows. Here, plastic tarp is used to make a big water mattress like object, but the basic process of welding can be used for almost any soft plastic sheets and many different purposes. And best of all, if you use old shopping/garbage bags, you’ll get to recycle in the most gratifying way possible!
