Bending Perspex
by: Anonymous

To bend the perspex all you have to do is heat it in the oven at 180 degrees C for about 2 minutes. Then you can bend and shape it easily.

oven? Noooo

I just found a website saying “Never heat acrylic in a kitchen oven. Explosive fumes can accumulate inside the oven, and ignite.”

than you for the information:)

you can use a heat gun, you can get one from most DIY stores and some craft stores, they look just like a hair dryer but get much hotter, wear protective gloves!
