We give an example of a compact set K of symmetric two by two matrices such that its lamination convex hull is not compact, and similar examples for separate convexity in R3 and bi-convexity in R2 x R. Furthermore we show that the operator, mapping a compact set onto the closure of its lamination convex hull, is not upper semi-continuous with respect to Hausdorff metric on the space of all compact sets K of diagonal 3 x 3 matrices.
