Acrylic question - where to get it
Hi, I'm completely new to case modding and am wondering where people like to go for their case window material? Also does anyone use colored acrylic like transparent but red, blue, green etc? That's probably harder to find, right?
You can get acrylic (plexiglas) at most homecenters and some hardware stores. Check out your phone book yellow pages for plastic or plastic suppliers. They may have some tinted stock. (don't count on it as there does not seem to be much of a market for clear colors.)
yeah i got my plexiglas from home depot, and had them cut it for me for free of course. i was also told by my fiance's dad that if you find a wholesaler you could get it for way cheaper. for the tinted glass i found this site
if you follow the links you can find colored plexiglas
this is the direct link to the colored glass
Go to Home Depot. You can buy a scrap piece for under $1.00 that'll be big enough to make a case window out of. If not, a whole sheet can be had for a few dollars.
If all else fails, try an arts and crafts shop, they also carry it and may have the colors as well as clear. It'll probably cost a tad more there though.
You might want to check your local glass shops. Most carry some form of plexy/lexan in stock. I have seen a few shops with colored plexy in stock to.
