So here is the finished product…
I way over ironed it. I think I might have a lock on the best temperature with the iron the next time.
I like side one the best. It’s more melty, but the holes are all fused. I forgot to put something heavy on it when I was done, and it curled a little, but I heated it back up and put a stack of Xbox 360 games on top of it.
I made a ton of mistakes, but overall, I think it is quite good for a first attempt.
I love that this hobby gave me an instant result, I think that it will be a really rewarding thing to do.
