Step 1: Preperation of Bags
First plug in your iron as it takes a while to get hot
Cut your bags in what ever shape is going to work for your form.
I cut square pieces out of the bag.
Take the shinny heating blanket and cut a size shape that is bigger by a few inches than your plastic sheets.
Next layout your bags ontop of eachother
(I used 4 layers of plastic for the gold cups)
Take the piece of shinny heating blanket and pt ontop of your plastic.
Use your iron and heat the shinny heat blanket then peel off to have fused plastic
Step 2: Making the Plastic Form
Take your plastic and an object whitch in my case was a wine botttle.
Plase the bottle on your plastic then play with the folding techquniqe until your happy then apply the shinny heat blanket on and fuse again
