first a margarine tub with a couple of milk bottle tops chopped up:
took quite a high temperature - the max the oven will do is 250C but it still took a long time.
but it stuck to the greaseproof paper too.
then i tried to flatten it and ruined it completely!! why can't i just leave things alone.
so then i tried the marg tub on its own and i love this!! i kind of turned out in the shape of an A too! i might try this again because i love the way the plastic curls.
then i tried the mesh and labels from the clementines. the mesh melted well but the label seemed to be more of a paper than a plastic.
so i took out the bits that didn't melt, but the rest in a bottle cap and put it on the electric hob to melt down into the cap:
then i tried clear plastic but put some acrylic paint in to give it some colour. plastic works well, goes white but i need to rethink the colouring
then i tried a mix of white, yellow and red mesh with limited success:
then i tried to flatten that on the hob between 2 heat proof cooking dishes - but the yellow burnt and it stuck to the foil.....
Overall Verdict: Oven not hot enough and fumes cause headaches - don't try this at home folks!
