An outbuilding here collapsed under the weight of the snow sliding off of a barn roof onto the building.And what do I find in the rubble but a broken piece of original pebble glass. As soon as I saw it, I thought of you guys searching tirelessly.Sadly (or luckily) depending on your point of view, it wasn't big enough for a whole TARDIS, but it was so sad to see it in pieces.If I find anymore around, I'll certainly let you all know...

No-one in retail was any use though all citing it as long discontinued.A few people have created rubber moulds and made reisn copieso f pebbled panes - does this work well overall, is it easy enough that it could be used by one generous soul to produce panes for TARDIS builders if sold at cost?Just thinking out loud...

Quote from: darksyde board=manual thread=1074 post=19798 time=1236125708I think I could mold some up but the acrylic I use that cures hard will yellow over time so I don't know how long it's out door life expectancy is. It is pretty workable though so in theory if I had the largest pane size any one would need one could cut it down to fit. Not totally sure how much they'd cost either. You need what, 8? or more depending on disired end result. I've also only found once place for the pebbled look that is pictured in this thread by Timegirl but the're inst realy a size referance so I don't know if the pebbleing effect is too small or not.http://www.americanstainedglasscompany.com/glass/kokomo/clear.htmscroll down a bit to 33H
