Van de Graaff generator possible parts

Going to work out in more detail later:

3"-3.5" inner diameter PVC pipe probably around 1.5'
mixing bowls, bigger the better
aluminium tape
4x end caps that fit small pvc piping
2x shafts to put pvc pipe rollers on (or similar)
paint mixing bucket
something to attach pvc column to paint mixing bucket
(if anything needs to go into the column, it has to be non-conductive)
electric motor at least 3000rpm which could drive the belt
power supply for motor (probably a stack of batteries)

neoprene belt, 2" wide, probably around 36" long

2x 1/2" pvc pipe
