When I was a kid they sold this stuff as a toy in a little genie bottle. It was a lot of fun to play with.

You can apparently get it on amazon.

I think it’s Kinetic Sand

u/gaardyn · 60 pointsr/pics

Less than $5 is expensive?

u/just_testing3 · 54 pointsr/BeAmazed

They are water beads (link to amazon).

They are a crystal polymer water substitute for plants and flowers. The beads absorb over 100 times their weight in water to form glass-like pearls that slowly release water back into their environment.

u/Daamus · 48 pointsr/pics

you can make little figures and stuff out of em. heres an amazon link

u/Seldain · 45 pointsr/pics

You could buy the water beads they use for weddings and put those in the soil.

You can buy a pack of dehydrated ones at Wal-Mart for like, $1.50. You soak em in water and add them to the pot.. they'll slowly release the water back over a few days.

edit: The clear ones are also fucking awesome to play with.

u/shyiaguy · 32 pointsr/pics

Bunchems. Read the reviews.

u/kane2742 · 31 pointsr/PeopleFuckingDying

After some searching, I found a site where you can buy these ($10 US, plus shipping).

Edit: Same price on Amazon, but eligible for free Prime shipping.

u/Hitokiri_Ace · 27 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Not OP.

Like the first picture shows, it's those water absorbing beads. Then when the jar is filled with water they become transparent.

Neat idea OP. :)

Not sure how long figures should be submerged, but it looks cool for a picture! (I'd imagine long term submersion would cause paint damage.)

u/Mr_mcchocolate · 18 pointsr/interestingasfuck

Reason it didn't work is you used glass beads, you need this

https://www.amazon.com/Pound-Bag-Water-Beads-Clear/dp/B0050ZNWYG/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1486652524&sr=8-5&keywords=flower+water+beads

Because these are 90% water that's why they appear invisible when in the jar of water.

I had a pack a few years ago and they smelled every bit as awesome as when I was a kid. Don't remember what happened to them, probably gave them away.

Where does one procure a telescoping crayon tower?! I had the 96 crayon set back in the day, but I've never even seen anything larger than that.

Found it! though I've never seen it in an actual store.

u/Dissidence802 · 7 pointsr/nostalgia
u/arieadil · 7 pointsr/DnD

Seconded. Polymer clay could work well for this. That way you could cure it in the oven. Air-dry clay would work well for this too and may give you a more rugged appearance like they belong in-game.

The "Carry on my Wayward Son" part sort of looks like it may have been written on this type of shrinking plastic. If you want, you could pick some up on Amazon or at your local craft store and easily replace that charm.

They most certainly do.

However, you may find the off-brand stuff more economical.

My team consists of /u/both_of_me and /u/eatingdust. Our team is the best for two reasons. Because we're awesome and JUST BECAUSE!

If we must be armed with something off my wish list, our first line of defense is googly eyes. We will stick them on zombie jesus and his minions and they will just look silly. They can't be scary or eat our brains if they look funny! Then we will throw brains at them if they get rowdy.

Ladies! Add some weapons to our inventory of silly!

Don't worry guys, we got this! Zombie jesus is going DOWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

Color on a Shrinky Dink Sheet, using bold lines (I like Sharpie), and colored pencil, and cut it out.

Make sure you draw it big enough, they'll shrink to 1/3 of their size in area after you bake them, and will thicken up considerably.

u/Br1ggs · 4 pointsr/beadsprites

It is just a standard jar I picked out at hobby lobby that was a hard edged cylinder. Lucky for you I posted a write up in /r/metroid. (I probably should have sold them as kits!)

PARTS LIST:

  1. It starts with making a baby metroid perler. You can find the original sprite at the spriters-resource Pick your favorite!

  2. Pick out the colors you require. Here is a handy chart. You can get perler beads at most hobby stores (Joanns, Hobby Lobby, Michaels)

  3. Acquire pegboard. here's an example It comes with parchment paper. follow the directions for melting with standard clothing iron (Steam setting should be off)

  4. Pick out jar. Choose cylinder with hard edges.

  5. Acquire Water beads here. Note that you only need 1tsp for 16-20oz. They expand 300x their size.

  6. Fill jar 1/3 full of water beads and place baby metroid centered in and level in the jar.

  7. Fill remaining portion of jar with water beads so the sprite stays still. Now fill the jar slowly with bottled water so all voids are filled. Go ahead and give it a couple taps / shakes for the bubbles to be released.

  8. Pick up base light. I really recommend this one. It has a rubberized sleeve that has good tacticity so the jar won't slip off.

  9. ENJOY!

I don't like onesies; I prefer the feeling of a waistband.

I'll second the Tangle and add Downbeats earplugs. Kinetic sand is cool. I can't find the one I have but sensory chews like this or this are great.

u/shawtypaid · 4 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

For those of you still trying to get your hands on a Go Plus, Amazon Spain has had them pretty readily available since initial release. It appears to be unavailable until the 22nd now, but all the way up until last week or so, they were in-stock. I even bought one the day after Black Friday with no issues.

I live in Cali and the order came in less than a week. You can use your preexisting Amazon account, and you're only paying slightly more than the USD MSRP (40EUR ≈ 40 USD).

u/digisake · 3 pointsr/teachinginjapan

I teach at the elementary level, so for student souvenirs I ordered some scratch and sniff stickers and also scented markers to grade their worksheets. The novelty of smelly stickers and markers is something they really don't have much of or even know about here in Japan, so the kids are always mystified that these stickers smell like mint chocolate chip, cherry, nacho cheese, etc. It's kind of a culture point too since I tell the kids that I received these stickers all the time from my homeroom teachers growing up :)

u/greenandbluefish · 3 pointsr/lotr

I did buy it. Here's a link to the clay I like to use. But that's kind of a lot of clay if you've never tried it before. (Plus I had a lot of paint lying around.) If you buy something like this you can get a lot of colors, and it will work just as well. You can also get a similar package at Walmart for cheaper. You can bake it in the oven at home. I might recommend wearing some gloves if you can, because I've found that some of the colors come off on your hands, especially the red. I used acrylic paint to make the eyes, which you can buy at Walmart for like 50 cents/bottle. You could also use a sharpie if you want. Hope this helps!

u/overthemountain · 3 pointsr/KingdomDeath

It takes a lot of time. You need the right tools. Id' have an exacto knife, some clippers, some files, a good glue, and probably some gap filler. Oh, and a cutting board to work off of.

I linked some examples to give you an idea, you can feel free to find a particular product that works for you, although I do really like the Tamiya glue. There are a lot of little pieces so some people might like some tweezers as well. I use cupcake wrappers to help keep the pieces in one place as I'm assembling and keep them from getting lost. I'd recommend not working over carpet as a dropped piece might get lost forever in there.

As others have said, Vibrant Lantern has some great build guides, which are probably required for more complex models like the Phoenix.

Otherwise, don't let the amount of sprues overwhelm you. Pick a miniature to assemble and finish it before moving on to the next one. Most of them are fairly straightforward. I would really recommend you take your time in assembly, as getting the edges filed and gaps filled will pay off in the long run - nothing worse than a well painted model with gaps and mold lines showing. There are plenty of videos out there on how to do this if you aren't sure or just want some additional instruction.

Start with the White Lion and starting survivors. The Screaming Antelope and Butcher will be the next ones to tackle. All of these are fairly easy to assemble.

u/grimdarktales · 3 pointsr/Warhammer40k

Yeah! So green stuff is a form of epoxy putty that can be used to shape into objects or fill gaps in models. You use it by combining two sides of epoxy to form a new chemical compound, which will eventually harden dry. I don’t really know my way around it that well but it’s very useful! There are many brands but here’s a link to one: The Army Painter 2 Part Modelling Clay, 20cm - Mouldable Model Putty Modelling Compound for Miniatures, Easy-to-Knead Green Putty Epoxy Clay for Sculpting - The Original Green Stuff Kneadatite https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001AE5ZQO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_98y5CbZDYMPRK :)

u/tehlon · 3 pointsr/guildball

Green Stuff is your friend.

Basically you take a little green and a little blue, roll it up into a ball until it is play-doh consistency and use it as tack. It is great for attaching arms/legs/weapons to models, but also for sticking them to bases. I do not prefer going straight super glue to model as the joints will be weaker, but pinning a model with soder or a paper clip is kind of a pain the butt. Green stuff is a happy in between method. Good joint strength easy to use.


Regarding bases specifically, I always fill in the gap of the base with green stuff before proceeding. Roll out a small line, then superglue it into the gap. Smooth out the underside of the base and scrap away excess. You need to work fairly quickly as the green stuff starts to harden after about 5 to 10 minutes. You’ll have enough time, just don’t go walk away and bake cookies or something.


Next decide if you want to keep the flash on the base of the model (rectangle attaching the feet). Some models, Obulous or Brisket for example, should keep the flash because their models will be less stable as they only stand on one foot. On a normal model, standing on two feet, I prefer to cut the flash off.


If you kept the flash on, glue up the flash and just stick it right into the green stuff you used to fill in the base, then remove any excess from both the top and underside. If you removed the flash, roll up two tiny balls of green stuff, super glue them to the feet, then superglue that to the base. Its ok if it is a little sloppy or some of the excess is left over because you'll want to cover it up with a good flock.

Easy peasy!

u/Esull · 3 pointsr/ECEProfessionals

water beads are by far one of my most popular options.

Home made fingerpaint (without the coloring), moondough, rainbow rice, beans, pasta shapes, beads, marbles, dirt, cotton balls, shredded paper, acorns, golf balls and color sand are all huge hits too. Adding glitter to anything also adds a lot of fun!

u/littledinobug12 · 3 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

OMG. I have a funny story about why my SO doesn't want to take me anywhere anymore.

Last night was his squadron's Christmas party. There were These Things on the table. I'm getting a bit on the tipsy side from Vodka and Cran, and I grabbed one.

It was squishy and gross. I looked at my SO, and the other dude next to me and started to grin evilly

I pulled out the titanium spork from my purse (Yes I have a titanium spork in my purse, it's a spork and you never know when you're gonna need on) loaded the water bead into the spoon part.

I held the handle in one hand, and I pushed down on the tines with the fingers of my other hand, and

PEW!!!! I sent that motherfucking water bead flying and PLOP onto a pilots head.

glad he was a good sport.

My SO stopped me before I could shoot the CO, Wing Commander and Wing Chief.

NO RAGRATS.

Backstory... I'm a bit of a geek. Seriously. I've also got Gallium And ferrofluid.

BEST april fools prank. I have one I just did, so not really april fools but still wonderful. My coworkers helped me saran wrap one of my employee's car. It was fantastic, yes I have photographic evidence if anyone is interested. Truly. Another is taping an airhorn to the underside of my GM's chair.

Fin or embarrassing fact or story... um... wow. Okay, this is fun and embarrassing. OK, here goes....

u/ooomphlaa · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

If you aren't yet 18 I can't condone getting into vaping regardless of if you are using 0 nic or not. At the core of it you are inhaling substances that still has not been fully researched and the long term impact of using is not fully understood. I won't go into how you go from being a child to an adult overnight when you turn 18 but 18 is what we all are stuck with as being the age in which you can use these types of products.

That all being said if you suffer from severe anxiety and clinical level (or any for that matter) depression you need to seek professional help. I say this with all seriousness. These are diseases and need treatment. Whether that means cognitive or talk therapy or medication or herbal/alternative treatment. Please take it from someone who knows. You've taken an important first step in recognizing you have a problem so please take then next important step and ask for help.

I love vaping. It helped me quit cigarettes after my first vape. And currently I don't see myself stopping any time soon. However, would I vape if I had never smoked? Probably not, in fact most likely not.

All seriousness aside check out this stuff Kinetic Sand it is amazing and hours of fun to play with.

Things can get better, but unless you ask for help and take that step they will not get better on their own.

Please take care of yourself. There is only one of you and we'd hate to lose you.

Now, if you turn 18 and decide to try out vaping please feel free to come back here and we'll all be happy to help you to vaping nirvana.

Cheers.

I really like the Grimm's toys. They are kind of expensive, but super cool for kids to stack and build, organize by size/shape/color, and they are made out of wood which is a nice different texture than all the plastic toys kids have. My 4 year old son loves playing with all his Grimm's stuff. We have the large rainbow, some of the little peg people, the trees, fairy houses, and some blocks. I would also suggest kinetic sand, play silks and costumes, a rocker board, and water beads. All the above are great sensory toys and are big hits with kids with or without autism!

My favorite birthday memory is from two years ago. My future boyfriend (we weren't "officially" dating... You know dudes) threw me a surprise birthday dinner at my favorite pizza place. I thought it was going to be just the two of us, but when we got to the restaurant my friends were there to celebrate. It was very sweet of him.

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is probably the hardest thing someone can go through. Even though you were there, I know she thought of you and didn't blame you.

I've run into this with a lot of Mantic stuff as well. Usually just have to patch it up with 'green stuff' epoxy (eg, https://www.amazon.com/Green-Stuff-Kneadatite-sculpting-Painter/dp/B001AE5ZQO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483990802&sr=8-1&keywords=green+stuff).
 
GW has some liquid green stuff, too, that might be easier, but I honestly haven't tried it. The gaps are kind of annoying, but you get used to it and it's not too hard to stuff some of the putty in there.

u/librarian-faust · 2 pointsr/minipainting
u/Makaseru · 2 pointsr/minipainting

I generally achieve this by using "green stuff/kneadtite" (or more typically for weaponry...) milliput and sculpting the weapons.

I feel like actual wood might not be as durable as I'd prefer for regular tabletop use, especially if you have players that haven't been taught to be gentle with the miniatures or if you don't have a case for transport purposes. It should hold paint alright tho...but to be fair I've only ever used it for an actual basing material.

u/PacManDreaming · 2 pointsr/Warhammer40k

It's just usually called "green putty". There are several different brands. GW carries a two part putty, but it's the same as other brands, but way more expensive.

This is a two part that's really good. You can also use it to mold and sculpt parts, like purity seals and the like.

This plastic putty has a nozzle so you can control the bead.

Tamiya and Squadron both make white/green putty that's good for filling small gaps and cracks.

u/tragopanic · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Washable fingerpaints! Let 'em be artsy! I recommend doing this in your kitchen or somewhere with tile, though, just to be on the safe side. Plus you can give their finished artwork to their parents, who will see that you entertained them without just plopping 'em in front of a TV.

Mint is a pretty durable plant, and this advice is spot on.

The only thing I might add is next time you repot it, add some Soil Moist" or Water Gel Beads which will allow you to go a few more days between watering.

u/TomTheHermit · 2 pointsr/space

These are the ones my daughter uses for her plants, but OP may be using a different kind. His seem to blend together better.

They are really handy for not having to remember to water as often if you mix them with soil. Otherwise, they can take the place of soil, but you have to remember to feed the plants as well when you do it that way.

u/turbo_time · 2 pointsr/terrariums

Maybe using water beads would help retain the moisture for longer. They're usually used in flower vases, and are nearly invisible when submerged.

Edit: Also, this set is more intricate, and has smaller parts that are easier to lose, and are a choking hazard. It has track pieces for the outer ring that can snap together to make many shapes, but that means this one might be more delicate.

Don't know how long you would be staying in Milan, but PoGo plus is available for pre-order on Amazon IT at €39.99 free delivery. Dispatch on 29 Dec. Saw that it costs a lot in other Amazon sites. Other trainers in Europe may opt to get theirs from Amazon IT.

When I was a kid I used to get Highlights magazine sent to my house every month. It was MARVELOUS! My favorite thing about it was the search and find. I would suggest these magazines for your daughters because that are fun and educational and everyone loves getting things in the mail. It's really awesome. I currently do it for my son who is 2. We are still getting the year 0-2 because they also send books. Which is great. My grandmother just signed us up on Christmas.

  • Adela - Spirograph I remember these used to be so much fun. They were amazing. Make sure to get colored pencils, a pencil sharpener and lots of fun paper too for this present.

  • Isla Sculpey clay. Since she likes play-doh, clay is a superior product and doesn't "spoil" so to speak. You can buy it on amazon. The best part about sculpey is that when you shape it to what you want, you can then bake it. Then it becomes a hard like figure which she can then paint. I feel like this would be a super fun project to do with both the girls. Get them set up on the table to roll and play with their clay. Get some of those molds for clay to help them create something and then have them bake it and paint it! Can keep them entertained for a few hours with a resulted finished product. You might be able to have a preplanned product to make before going into it. For instance, Try to make real simple animals. There are easy tutorials of balllike animals that are wicked cool. Type that into google watch the video. I would link it but I"m in class right now and this guy is just going on and on and I'd love to have a video interrupt my Ben Stein teacher but... I'd also like to pass the class so.. Sorry you'll just have to google that. Anyway, so

    For Isla I would suggest: Sculpey clay, molds and presses for the clay, and kid paints. This is great for gifts too.. have them make stuff for others. It helps improve dexterity skills which makes it a really great idea.

    Both of these gifts are interactive and are able to be used by both of the Princesses.

    EDIT:: Sculpey clay

    Sculpey with colors in it already

    Fun molds

My daughter is 6! She likes Legos and Lego video games. Does your daughter have any consoles? You said she is getting in to video games. I can recommend Lego Harry Potter and the Lego The Movie video game. Spring is coming. Does she like birds? She might like a set of binoculars and this bird book. My daughter has that book and loves trying to find all of the birds listed in our area. Peeler beads are something your two girls can do together. They might also like a spin art machine.

u/wait_________what · 1 pointr/DnD

Depends on how faithful you want to be. I didn't want to do too much cutting and modeling, so I only made additive changes using green stuff, like doing a smooth coverup of the face to look more like the faceless hood.

Then I left the sword off of the left arm, and rolled some green stuff into thin long vines to wrap around the arm starting from the shoulder and ending just below the current hand to create the long branch claws.

I ended up not doing the claws on the other hand because i liked the pointing, but you could essentially do the same thing here. And thats pretty much it, as I feel like I will be able to get the feel of the leshen close enough with the paint job.

quick edit: you could probably also do some smaller vines coming off of him at the shoulder or elbow to simulate branches, kind of like this guy

"Green Stuff" Kneadatite sculpting putty by Army Painter

I get mine from my local hobby shop. I like Army Painter brand, but Citadel is probably easier to find locally.

I can't stress enough how important it is to take a little rough sand paper or a file or knife or something to the exposed plastic where you intend to bond it together with the super glue, and let it get tacky exposed to the air a few seconds before pushing the parts together.

Edit: link fix.

u/Fenderboy771 · 1 pointr/minipainting

Have you checked out Green Stuff? It's basically modeling clay for minis

u/UnionJack1989 · 1 pointr/wyrdwars

Glad you found some minitures you like!

As for getting the right parts for the minitures, I'd recommend using BitzBox it has most parts both 40K and fantasy, might have the bits you need.

Also I'd recommened getting some Green Stuff, some cheap sculpting equipment. With this you'll be able to edit, or even created new items for the warband. My friend and I use it quite often.

Whatever you do, don't but the GW green stuff. Firstly, the liquid stuff is terrible as mentioned above. I like the idea mentioned above but can be tricky to get right. The regular putty style green stuff is far more forgiving. I bought a pack of this for £8 about a year ago. Still got more than half of it and it's exactly the same stuff!

Whichever route you take, the finish will be much better patching the gaps, especially if you get a good paint scheme on the model when you're done. Shame to have it let down by a kit miss match. Good luck!!

I don't use a planner, but a dry erase board was a great tool for me to draw out a month calendar and see everything graphically. It's also good for random lists around the house you want to write down before you forget. There are some cheap ones or you can buy a big one with a calendar built in

u/TheBlotterOfInks24 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/dogfacedpajamas · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. Get a dry erase board for your fridge! It's great for notes for reminders, shopping lists, telling your roommate to do her dishes, etc.

  2. The Art of Manliness is a funny site that has a lot of great life tips and skills. Think Ron Swanson type advice. It's geared towards men obviously, but ladies should have these skills too!

  3. Keeping a notepad and dry erase board (see above) in the kitchen has helped cut down on the clutter. My kitchen is kind of the dumping ground of random stuff and to-do-lists, so having a dedicated "notes" area helps consolidate the random bits of paper.

  4. Improving my posture and effort in clothes has helped me a lot with confidence. Just looking alert and put together makes me feel so much better, and I make sure to always throw on a pair of jeans or similar before going out. Wearing athletic clothes/leggings/sweats out always made me feel sloppy, but just wearing actual clothes instantly improves my attitude. And people respond better, which is an added boost. Loose skirts are super easy ways to dress up an outfit.

Anything colorful will work, and plushies tend to last a while this Alice and Wonderland set is a good example of long lasting plushies that will take some wear and tear.

Artwork for her room in bright colors would also be really cool.

Crayons, paints, art supplies. Crayola makes a lot of colorful art supplies for kids, like these washable paints. Then just get some giant paper to go with it and you've got some entertaining supplies!

u/SaraSmile416 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

When I was about 6, I loved to draw but I was always bummed to use the "kid supplies" to draw with like crayons and markers. My mom went out and got me "real" art supplies because she said I was a "real artist" and needed the "big people" supplies. It meant the world to me, not only because the stuff she bought me was good but that she also believed in me... so, I would recommend for Adela:

Oh man, this kinetic sand kept my 26-year-old husband enthralled for about two hours (along with everyone who was watching him). It'd be awesome for kids!

Kinetic sand is just sand mixed with polymer, so it is fun to form and it sticks to itself, so it doesn't get everywhere. It is mesmerizing...

u/PairOfMonocles2 · 1 pointr/gifs

Nope, not for decent stuff. We've bought three times because we have a small sand table on our porch (so it lives outside uncovered) but after a couple months our three year old has lost half of it through the floor. Twice it's been perfect like this and doesn't change, one brand was crap but it was crap from day one. Oddly, he liked it at least as much, it just wouldn't hold shapes well. Anyway, all three were different brands from Amazon so if there's differences it seems to be more who made it than changes over time.

Btw, I'm pretty sure this is the one we bought last time and it's been great:

The resonance makes the pattern start and end with them in the same point every 8 earth years/13 venus years, after which it repeats. 8 years from today, Earth and Venus will be in the same spots relative to the sun as they are right now. If they weren't resonant, that wouldn't happen.

But they aren't exactly resonant, so if the simulation continued for another 8 year cycle, the next pattern would look the same but be a teensy bit offset from the previous one. If they were perfectly resonant, then the pattern would draw right on top of itself for the next cycle.

If that's not enough, I dunno man, buy a spirograph.
