Both my room mate and I got sugru for the contest, but hers arrived first and she promptly fixed everything in the room and I was at a loss as to what to do with mine. Until I thought of trying to make my own California-shaped bands!
Step 1: Materials
For this project, you will need:
-one sheet of transparency (I think that's what it's called, you can get it at office supply stores) (make sure it's really clean)
-piece of paper with the outlines of the shapes you want to make
-sugru (I found one of the small packets was enough to make 3 bracelets)
Step 2: Prepare sugru
Follow the instructions on the packet for preparing and working with sugru. It will stick to everything! Make sure your hands are super clean to minimize sticking.
After working with the sugru for about 30 seconds, roll it into a long snake shape about 1/8 inch thick.
Step 3: Shape the band
In the first picture, you can see that the paper has shifted under the transparency which can make it difficult to make a good shape. This is why I should have taped it down.
Let it cure for at least a few hours!
