Being the creative person I am I've got bored of the cage I recently made for the piggies and what to change it up again 🀣 Uh oh πŸ˜‚

This time, I think I was to do a pink piggy palace, of just cute girlyness, maybe make it look like a castle, who knows, but ideally I would like white or pink coroplast for the base, does anyone know of cheap places I can get either of these colours, in 4mm thickness (ideally) (in the UK)

Ive had a look but the places I'm finding seem to be relatively expensive, thank you in advance! πŸ’—

Hi,
I've very recently received my sheet of 4mm White Correx.. Bought it from the Aluminium Shop on ebay. I'm in the UK too.
It was Β£7.99 for a 2400x1200 (8ftx4ft) sheet.. Because I wanted it delivered flat, that cost Β£14.99... But it's a huge sheet & think the courier used is a specialised one (due to size)
So, it's not cheap (total of Β£22.98), but worth it to get it home & up to me on the 3rd floor :D ...... It was in perfect condition too x

I bought my sheet of white 4mm correx direct from the Aluminium Shop also. It was Β£9.59 Inc VAT and Β£7.95 for delivery. Mine came rolled, within 2 days of ordering. Being rolled meant it wasn't flat on the floor when cutting, and had to be held down, but no other issues. If I had had time I would have done something to flatten it out, but I had to make the cage the day it arrived, but it wasn't a big problem.

Yeah, am sure they had a separate ebay item, for the correx being delivered rolled. Hope your base turned out ok?
My wire grids are arriving tomorrow or Friday :)

When I bought mine, it was a few pounds cheaper buying it direct rather than via eBay etc, you can pay a bit more to have it delivered flat. My base turned out well thanks, though I did manage to cut all the way through it by accident on one corner ! Hope your build goes well too.

That's great it turned out well. Oh dear, I have heard that you've got to be careful cutting the correx - I'm nervous about doing that part - just hope when I'm scoring the correx, it doesn't go straight through! Lol..
Thanks for your good wishes - I just hope I don't bugger it up! Haha :lol:
