He told me that it is mold-able and bendable when heated up in boiling water. Many people use it to mount photos. It is like a PVC plastic material and can be cut with a jig-saw like wood. He uses it to make models of things - wow way over my head.
BOWLS. I bought three pieces but only used two. I am going to bug a friend for her jig-saw with piece number three.
Okay...so this is what I did.
I took the Sintra...see kind of pricey for just a piece of plastic at the bookstore, but the student artist guy informed me that it is usually about $1.50 at other art stores. I am just glad I got it for 65 cents. :)
I just bent this part in so the crack wouldn't be exposed - shhhhh.
I wanted the bottom of my bowl to lie flatter than it was so I set it on top of the pot for about 15 seconds and then pressed it against the counter ...and repeated this a couple of times until I was satisfied.
So not for everyone...pretty "modern art" looking, which I kind of totally love. :)
Now we have an extra fruit bowl....
