Make a simple & efficient 500mm x 300 mm sheet
This is Zero Plastics Australia's Large craft sheet design, In our opinion a must need for any workspace.
800grams granulated plastic
1 aluminum frame
2 aluminum base plates
Stanley knife and paint scraper (this will help you to gently pry apart the aluminum plates.
Cooking - 20-30 mins
Cooling - 20-30 mins
Tidy up - 5-10 mins
Step 1 - Preparing the mould
Lay 1 base plate and the aluminum frame down, fill evenly with the plastic granules, then lay the second base plate on top, like a sandwich before closing.
Step 2 - Preparing the machine
Once temperature reaches 200 degrees, close the machine as tightly as you can, until you hear a click. This might take some fiddling with the knob at the top.
Step 3 - Melting the plastic
Step 4 - Tidy up
You can use the Stanley knife to gently carve out the sheet if it gets stuck.
Then take your time to gently carve the borders to clean up your sheet.
Step 5 - Experiment with colours
