I don't know if this is the right forum but:
Does anyone know of a prop builder that could fashion a 4 or 5 inch diamond for discovery inside a fountain of silks?
We need something lightweight.
The one currently in use is a 5 inch glass paperweight. It is very cumbersome and quite heavy for a body load.

You may not need a custom build. There are 'novelty jumbo diamonds' made of plastic that you can find online.

I hope this helps.

BigWheel,

Thanks, but the links you posted were both for the solid glass (heavy) paperweight.

I too assumed I'd find a lightweight plastic one somewhere on the internet but I've had no luck.

At one time, if my memory serves mr right, I saw a bracelet that looked like a finger ring. It had a light-weight giant hollow plastic diamond on it.
I've searched all over to no avail.

It's funny, the minute I replied to BigWheel, I realised I had not Googled "Jumbo toy finger ring". And there it was. Unfortunately, smaller than I remembered. So I'm back looking for a 4"-5" light weight plastic diamond.

I know I've seen a 4"-5" lightweight plastic diamond in a toy shop or online. I'll keep looking! 2" diamonds are available from craft stores, but doubling that size seems to make them harder to find.
