Week 3: Plastic fusing

This was the most fun week for me! In this lesson we use cut outs from plastic bags and iron them together to fuse the plastic pieces creating a single surface. I decided to have a little fun this week and use plastic to create some funny faces.

The 3rd face I created, for this I used black trash bag for the background and as it is quite thin it caused some shrinkage hence it was not very successful

The bags which I brought

I think this is definitely one of the more fun methods for me! As I love how the faces turn out, it is really different from when you lay it out as plastic pieces. The only thing is that when the bits of plastic are small it is hard to manipulate them and thinner plastics may melt and warp.
