One of my first assignments was to make lots of Noids. We were doing a commercial called "Ice-o-matic". I got to make these guys with the ice machines on their backs and the ice floor surface which was just 1/8" Plexiglas with white china marker lines drawn on the back side. I made the skates by cutting out thin brass sheeting and then painting it with flat blue acrylic paint. The ice sickles were made by melting 1/8 " plexiglass rods with a torch and pulling them apart to form tapered ends.
