Does anyone know how to manipulate LCD screens without completely trashing them? Answered

I want to turn old LCD screens into art (from calculators, watches, etc.). I like the look of them when pressure is applied, but it isn't permanent.

I recommend the ones that are sensitive to less than 95 degrees F,
because skin temperature is less than body temperature.

Have you tried mounting them in some sort or framework and having something adjustable press on different portions from the rear?
