I bought some of this, just to try out – and oh, baby does my Maxxie cut it beautifully! It’s a thick material, it resists tearing, but it cuts very smoothly. The product is called modeling film and it comes in clear (transparent), black and white. You can stamp it and/or color it, and then heat it up to mold it into your desired shape. I made Easter themed napkin rings with it, but didn’t feel that project really did the modeling film justice so I decide to make some 3D pansies. And I LOVE them!
For the one on the left I used more ink, and for the one on the right I used more blending solution to soften it – I can’t decide which I like better.
- f = 125
- v = 200
- Multipass = 2
- Cut the modeling film
- Color with alcohol inks
- Apply heat and shape as desired
- Cool and glue the pieces together
- Embellish with glitter, flowersoft, paper shavings, or something similar for the stamens
This was a fun and easy project, and opened my mind up to lots of possibilities with this very ‘cuttable’ product.
