Melt plastic Soda Bottles into the "water" shapes

Plastic-label
Remove the label from a plastic soda bottle
Rinse the bottle with cold water.
Plastic-cut
Cut into three sections. For the shapes you will need the larger middle section (-the bottle neck can be used in the future as a funnel and the bottom section makes pretty plastic flowers).
Hold the plastic diagonally so that you can cut the shape from one corner to the other making the longest shape possible.Cut in a squiggly shape
Plastic-heat
With a heat gun heat the sharp sections until they curl- this takes seconds. Heat some of the largest sections to create larger curls.
The heat has a delayed reaction. Heat a section slightly and remove the heat gun to see the results.
Plastic-heat2
Be careful- the heat gun and plastic gets very hot.
The heat will make the plastic harden and keep the shape better.Do not over heat and cause the plastic to turn brown or burn.
Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area. The smell of heated plastic can become quite strong.

About me

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
