Really fast! [Ask Sue. :-(]
I may go with opaque acrylic dividers. We have a great plastics store here
that will pretty much fabricate anything I come up with, I'm still looking
for a slick way to affix them. Silicone will be the backup method. I'd like
to go with something that's permanent "on-demand".
Glass ia way cheaper and better. Silicone sticks to glass, but almost
not at all to acrylic. It's easy to remove with a bit of razor work, and
cleans up just fine from glass with minimal thumb-rubbing.
I have siliconed the plastic binder strips used for binding reports to
the walls of aquaria, which let me slip in either solid sheet dividers
or plastic canvas if I wanted circulation. Cut the top corner at a 45
degree angle to make starting the sheet easier.
Talk to Jim Fong of Sunnyvale,
He has been doing glass dividers for years, and knows all the tricks.
