    Default Help with garbage bag DIY background


    0 Not allowed!
    I hate the SW background on my FW tank. So today i tried to use vaseline and a black garbage back. I put a layer of vaseline on the glass and put the unopened garbage bag on it. (i went throught 3 trashbags, because as soon as they open its impossible to use the gift card to get all the air bubbles out.) Andyway 3 trashbags and an hour later i gave up and put the sw backround back on. How do you get the bubbles out of this backround? I had gottin one half done really ewasily, but the other half was proving more dfficult and i don't know why. Does anyone kno how to do this?? I don't wanyt to waste money with those cheap store bought ones, and i want a black one to match my gravel. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    Only use ONE layer of the trashbag. Cut it to fit your tank. Use a credit card to spread the vasillne into a thin layer. Then apply the garbage bag. Cut a peice of cardboard to the exact heighth of the glass part (not black trim). Use that from left to right. It might take more than one pass.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    Cool! Black backgrounds really bring out the colors of fish.

    Thats cool! :)

    Just an idea (popped into my head right now).....have you thought about using a black latex paint? Like the stuff that some girls in the mags paint on themselves to make it look like clothing? It probably won't run when wet, probably just peels off when your done with it? Lol I dunno...just something I thought of quickly.
