You’ve likely already heard of the trick of using baking soda as a curing accelerant (aka “kicker”) for super glue (cyanoacrylate). You can also use to CA glue and baking soda to create a structural material for fixing things. But can you cast with this combo?
This is the question that Evan and Katelyn decided to try and answer. They wanted to see if you could cast this material in a mold, in this case, for a 6-sided dice cube.
It took a lot of trial and error, and things didn’t look so great for awhile, but eventually they got a decent cast. I don’t suspect that lots of people are going to start casting super glue dice anytime soon, but it was an interesting experiment.
