I'm all for recycling, but this may be just a little too much: using X-rays as umbrella sheets.
X-ray film is not cheap to begin with, and you'll need 24 large ones to complete this do-it-yourself project. So you may end up with a brolly that's unique (after all, no one else can have the same fracture), but at a cost.
You will also need a pair of scissors to cut the fabric from a golf umbrella, a sewing machine, a grommet punch (a tool to make holes), and clear zip ties. Complete graphical instructions on how to make your own X-ray umbrella are available on designer Anastacia Spada's Web site at Coroflot.
