Very creative lesson plans. Thank you for sharing.Penny DuncanArt tEacher
Could you tell me what amp of heat gun you used? I really love your idea with the transparencies!
Agreed about the heat gun. I don't have a heat gun and have never used one. I wonder if there are alternatives for melting the plastic. Do they give off a bad smell when heated? Would love to know because they look beautiful!
I believe most heat guns have a low/high setting. the closer the student gets to the plastic the more likely it is to burn a hole. so advise them to use the low heat and keep it further back. the metal piece on the end gets very hot easily and quickly so make sure they know and don't burn themselves. if you are skeptical I would advise trying a blow dryer on the high heat setting. and maybe try shrink wrap? good luck!
I tried to do the heat gun idea but the transparency turned black! Any ideas on what I did wrong?
Has anyone used a hairdryer?
what type of overhead transparencies did you use? we have two kinds - ones meant to go in the copier and the kind that are just for writing on and using on the overhead. does it matter?
