For about 5 years I have been wanting a great Chihuly project. I found one on Dick Blick and bought all of the materials and it failed- I even called Dick Blick for help- I have no idea what I did wrong, but it didn't work!
The other day I tons using recycled plastic bottles, and I found one using clear plastic glasses. I decided to combined them! The base of my sculpture is a used plastic water bottle cut and melted with my heat gun, the others are clear plastic cups that are actually left over from my wedding!!! Crazy that I still had some, but they were packed away and I found them when we moved so I have been using them as water cups here at school.
A little sharpie marker, a little heat and some hot glue an I have my very own Chihuly sculpture! Look out Drawing and Design!
