My first attempt to use the polymer pellets was very disappointing. I attempted to make impressions on the polymer after it was cured, but this hardly dented the surface.
The polymer was not easy to use. A bowl was filled with hot water and the pellets were added. The pellets were agitated with a fork, and started to go opaque gathering together. It was a quick process that required quick manipulation to allow it to work.
By not mixing properly, it resulted in a fragile rice like effect. However, the sample below created a bowl which when dried was solid. I attempted to add beads to the polymer, but it would not hold the beads and they kept falling out.
By adding a button, I was quite happy with the results and reminded me of a starfish and its tiny tube feet.
Embedding a buckle was more successful than the beads as this was due to the surface area. And possibly because I was beginning to get the idea of how it worked.
Adding zip ties was not very successful, although it embedded into the polymer, it still looked like zip ties and had no real features, so was disappointing.
