get some little green army men and melt their little helmets and feet on top of each other, u can use a metal or glass bowl to help mold 'em into a bowl shape! start from the bottom and work your way up! be safe and work in a well ventilated area... melted plastic is stinky! hit up a local dollar store for cheap materials, i think they even have plastic dinosaurs!

We used these in art class to make paintings using wax... basically you put the wax on a piece of wood and melt it... and if the heat gun is powerful enough the wax will move around making cool designs and such

you can use it like they said. You can also use it on shrinky dinks (shrink art paper) instead of heating up the oven, or any plastic that can shrink. I just found out today that you can use the grocery store lids to design and shrink! Good luck! Happy
