Plastic ‘Blister’ packaging is every where….it’s the plastic ‘window’ like part on a package that protects the item inside the package….yes you usually rip it off the card board backing and throw them both away. Wait! No….Not any more….I love those packages…there are so many shapes and sizes. I have so many ideas for them I haven’t even begun…..
I recently bought this toy package for another project. (It’s the truck in the above photo…. I knew right away I could use the ‘blister’ …..I was very excited there was so much detail. So here is what I made using the Cool2Cast plaster. I poured the C2C plaster into the plastic blister….then when it set up….about 2 hours I carefully removed and here is the truck in plaster only.
Now you could paint very fancy…but I just put on the basics… You could hand paint the name… I just used self adhesive pre-cut craft foam letters.
This would be a great project for boys… we are always looking for cool projects for boys.
So next time you open a package….don’t throw away those plastic blisters…. I’ve got so many more ideas to share
Just creatively recycling!
