PVC pipes

Although PVC pipes may not seem like they are a good background material, they can definitely be used.  I always thought it would be cool to make a background out of all different sizes and lengths of PVC pipes put together like:


Once heated, PVC pipes can be bent to any direction you would like.  PVC pipes can be great to make into a tree with roots or an awesome behind the background cave system.

Here are some photos of thaves427’s tree background made from PVC as seen on Photobucket.

Have you seen any cool tank backgrounds made out of PVC?
