Not too long ago, we created a custom acrylic feeding toy for this octopus at Westminster, Colorado’s Butterfly Pavillion

To get neon acrylic sheet that was 1″ thick, Charlie Waychoff figured out a way to glue 4 sheets of 1/4″ thick material without having the adhesive fog the face of the 4 layers.  The finished glue-ups stayed crystal clear with the same neon color that they were made with at the factory.
