• Plastic Container Badge

    The first badges on clothing appeared in ancient times. They served as a mark of distinction that reflected affiliation with a particular stratum of society. Then the icons became symbols of election campaigns, student societies. But gradually they began to lose their official status. These elements have become an integral part of the youth culture. Today, the badges are placed on jackets, jeans clothes and other things. And they look differently - then creating a romantic, then austere, then a rebel image. Therefore, I propose to make an icon from a plastic container with your own hands.

    Step 2. Take a plastic container. We cut off from it only the equal part (we do not need corrugated). Apply the cut out plastic to the picture and outline the whole picture along the contour. It is better to use a thin marker to make the drawing neat and clear. Please note that the icon should be two or three times more than the desired result, because plastic will shrink and the picture will be much reduced.

    Step 4. By ozhite preform icon on pan lined with foil or parchment paper. Heat oven to 200 degrees. Place the baking tray in the oven for 30 to 60 seconds. Soon the plastic will start to bend, but then it will straighten and shrink. You can get the blank from the oven. It has become more solid and diminished.

    Step 5. While the billet is still hot, press it down with something heavy, for example, with a mug. So, it will become more direct.

    Note: my billet was 10 cm before baking, and after - 3 cm. Step 6. We begin to colorize. To do this, use nail polishes or acrylic paints. You can paint from any side. Feel free to paint over all the lines, as on the back of the line will still be visible.
