Here you can see him enjoying himself in the snow
I've tested the red paper bowl by pouring in 1 liter of water.
After the said 30 minutes the bowl was standing in a little puddle and the bottom of the bowl was weakened. After letting it dry on the heater it is hard again, but I see the experiment as partly failed. I didn't test the yellow bowl yet because I saw some cracks in the paint as well, so I can guess what the outcome would be.
I have been busy with yet another test piece, this time I wanted to combine the sturdiness of the Captain Kirk piece with the good looks a velomobile should have in my opinion. So I made another little bowl.
I've used 4 layers of corrugated cardboard as a base and finished it with another 4 layers of paper using wallpaper glue. I've used a different applying technique this time and I'm quite pleased with the outcome.
After everything is dry I could also use one layer of paper on the inside to give it a smooth finish. this way the possibility of cracks is smaller and it will look so much better.
Imagine, this is how your future velomobile could look like...
