Question

 

I want to bend my material to make 3-D shapes. Is this possible?

 

Crafty says:

 

The Ultimate Creative Craft Board’s unique formulation allows it to be heated and formed for such uses. Heat is best applied in small areas using a hair dryer or heat gun while larger area can be submerged in hot water to soften the material.

 

Applying heat with a heat gun or hair drier should be done gently to avoid scorching, burning and bubbling of the sheet.

 

Once bent to shape, hold the board steady until it has cooled to retain its form.

 

Always take care when applying heat to avoid any personal injury!!
