Toast/Easy-bake oven for Shrinky Dinks?
« on: May 16, 2012, 14:16:57 »
Heya!
Confuzzled is close and I've been thinking about what to offer on my table (first time at a Dealer's Den).
One thing I would like to offer are custom Shrinky Dinks keychains/coins/etc.
If you don't know Shrinky Dinks, it's basically some sort of thin plastic which can be colored and designed in various ways.
Once you put it in the oven it shrinks down and becomes a lot thicker and harder.
(See here for further information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrinky_Dinks)

The thing is, I'd need an oven to shrink the plastic. I tried to use a hair dryer and a heat-gun instead, but the hot air just blows away the plastic,
making it unable to let it shrink smooth and even. :C
Does anyone have a portable Toast- or Easy-bake oven I could use for make those shrink?
Having asked that, would it be OK to have such an oven either in the Dealer's Den or in my room?

Thank you for reading!
Neo

Hi Neo;

I'm afraid at this point we would be unable to accomodate an oven in the Dealers den, nor would this be acceptible in one of the hotel rooms.

I'm sorry for any inconvinience caused.  We might be able to accomodate this next year.  Please ensure to contact the commerce department well in advance of the convention to get approval for any special equipment you need to use.

Many thanks

I thought so since it's on rather short notice, but thanks for the quick answer! :)
