Step 2: Iron it funky!

Place some material that you don't mind possibly ruining under the foil, and baking paper on top.

lorn it. As soon as you apply heat then raise the iron the foil will crinkle in really interesting ways. Keep ironing until you're happy with the shape and texture.
Could you possibly show us the book cover?
sorry, i gave it away months sgo and never took a pic. :(
Very cool project. Thanks for the instructable! I tried to find sites for non- food microwavable projects without any luck.. could someone please suggest a web site?
Neat. In a previous life, I used to microwave things for jollies. (can't reach the lab microwave anymore, for all the piles of junk) Anyhow chip bags <em>shrink </em>in the microwave, making funky tiny chip bags...<br/>
really? I thought some of them had metal inside? wow am i just that dumb or do they just not pop or something???
lol, after you eat the chips!
no i know that. i just thought that the actual bag had metal infused with it. kind of like juice boxes. you can't put metal in the microwave
It does, but it's so thin that it dosn't spark. Now cds...they are spectacular in the microwave! :)
I dunno if it's so much the thickness of the metal as it's geometry. Gold rim coffee cups (even if the gold's so worn that you forget it's there...) make a pretty wild lightning show as well. (especially if you aren't expecting one...) It might even be because of the wear, that the induced electrical charge arcs from gold area to gold area. The CD acts in similar fashion, the encoding pits creating areas with no aluminum film, across which the electricity arcs. There's plenty of sites devoted to creative nonfood microwavery, some of which explain the physics involved much better than I can, 'cuz I can't seem to explain my way through a wet paper bag. Old vacuum tubes are quite impressive also.
Hooray! An excuse to eat unhealthy food! I've never been more happy to live in a town with two potato chip factories.
Instructables is never at fault of something new! Nice work!
Those are really ... artistic. Nice job.
Mmmm... Sea Salt chips... I need to try those.
Whereas I made an insane mirro magig... nice 'ible...
I have never ever wanted to waste the packages of chips-- they're so... <em>so</em> shiny. I knew you could make something, and know I have found what it is.<br/>Nice job.<br/>
