Is there a fellow Canuck out there that can verify whether or not Dollarama carries this wrapping (seeing as how they have the readiboard...) ?

Scroll down to the second article mentioning the $1 clear wrap!!!
No phone numbers are listed online for stores.

So we decided that we were going to make M&M, caramel apples. We needed the following:1.1. 1.Caramel cubes (30oz) Bulk Barn $7 $
2. Apples--- 9 apples for $3 No Frills $3
3. M&M party pack 1kg for $12.99 $13
4. Skewers 12 from $1 Dollarama $1
5. Ribbon $2 from Dollarama $2
6. Clear wrapping paper $1 from Dollarama $1

You are welcome, and great to see my idea was some help. After a long absence because of major health reasons, I am back in the game.

3m77 is a spray, not really that expensive, and will go a long, long way... You do not need much , just a light spray...
$9.98 at lowes...

Is this still a thing?

I was about to buy some monokote and went searching for putting in on DTFB. I have some DTFB floats I want to make water proof (obviously) I've tried different glues, min wax etc I always end up with a leak. the coating would ensure a seal (or at least a better seal &#128521


anyway... then I stumble on another cheap DT find for some clear film. Is this still being used? Do they still sell it? could it work for the bottom of the floats? would the water just cause the film to delaminate (can I even do this with monokote?)

the real answer is I should probably suck it up and buy some foam floats, but I made a design that I can resize for any plane and I can build them out of one sheet of DTFB so they are CHEAP 😊

any advice? Thanks in advance.


PS here is the file if you wanna make some floats! I suck at sketchup so if printed at 100% this will make 20" floats, do the math and print to scale to fit your needs. I've gone as big as 26" but still the problem of waterproofing 😕
