So when my sugru arrived, I decided to make this my first sugru project: making a new clasp strap out of sugru.
-watch with missing clasp strap
Unnecessary materials (I didn't use them, but they would probably help):
OR maybe Vaseline?
(pending future experimentation with sugru)
Step 1: Prepare Watch
This is the point at which the unnecessary materials list (see intro page) comes into play: this would be a lot easier if the end of the strap were close to the band, unlike in this picture. The trouble is, sugru bonds to everything- watch bands, aluminum foil, etc. So you might want to try putting a rubber band on it, or I hear sugru doesn't stick to cling film.. let me know what works, if you try it!
But I, fool that I am, just let it be, as shown in the picture.
Step 2: Unwrap Sugru and Play With It
Step 3: Mold Sugru
Mold the sugru around the two straps. If you can manage it, press it into the little hole on the end of the loose strap so it will hold better. Then take that strap out and make sure the sugru isn't stuck on your watch; you want it to be slidable (but it shouldn't be able to slide off the main strap over the buckle).
