experimentation at home pictures

27/05/2018 at 11:34

Hi, i have been melting some plastic at home. I used a 5euro oven and materials from home or second hand shops. I have been doing these experiments so see how plastic reacts and what the possibilitys are. I can say I am surprised that I could manage to create these shapes with minimal tools and knowledge.
The most amazing thing are the colours, I find it so beautifull, every time I am surprised of what I created with plastic. The material is so beautifull but totally misuderstood and used in the wrong way. Thank you Precious Plastic for this big inspiration source

Hey there @jims !

Nice experimenting going on there ! I love the blue textured product you showed on first serie of photos!
Do you mind explaining your process on the 2nd serie of photos ? Looks like the white bowl is already recycled; is it a remelt ?
The photo #1 of serie 3 & 4 seems to have burnt; did you notice any difference in your process (or type of plastic ?)

Looking forward to see some more testings !!

Peace
Nick

Hi there @imuh , thanks for your respond.

The white bowl was the first bowl I made, I wasn’t satisfied with the result so I melted it again. About your other question, yes it is burned. When I was melting the plastic in my oven the neightbor asked me: What are you doing, are you melting plastic or what?Than exactly at that moment the plastic caught on fire……..

It was to long in the oven on 250 degrees

What type of plastic were you using ? 😮 never read or experimented a plastic which would take fire at such temperature…

can you tell me how you made small pieces of the plastic without a shredder?
