After my previous post I've had another go at remelting SD plastic
To remelt the SD you just cook it up as normal first, then stack them on top of each other creating the affect you want and reheat again. I find that to adhere the bits together a normal oven works well.... but to get the rounded edges that gives it the glassy look a blow torch works best! being careful not to burn the plastic!!!
In my last post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350654.msg4091627#msg4091627
) I used crystal clear shrink plastic, as someone asked (Diane B.) what type of plastic I used as they seemed so clear I thought I would give the frosted plastic a go today!
as you can see in this picture the backing piece looses some of its frosting during the remelting (looks almost like its just oily now
In the previous pieces I have used very fine sand paper and polishing paper to get the high gloss look as they can sometimes be slightly spotty (looks like air bubbles?)
I made a matching beaded ring as I want to wear these out tonight
To add a little bit more colour I've ran some bright pink along the edges, I love you it sounds out at some angles but is barely visible at others
Thanks for looking!
