I am looking to bend a piece of plastic/acrylic (not really sure what I'm getting yet), for a craft project I am working on.
I watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkpqfcg1W_o
where they heat and bends a piece of acrylic, with a propane, or some other type of torch. To me, it seems like a really bad idea using a torch. He is also inside, which also seems like a really bad idea, unless he had a very good ventilation system...
I was thinking of using a hair-dryer, but I'm not sure if it would get hot enough, as well as doing this outside.
I was curious if this seems like a bad idea? I would assume with proper ventilation I should be fine? I also do think that the torch overheated the acrylic in the video, which would not be a problem with a hair-dryer.
