Experimenting with heat gun

Using my new toy the heat gun, I picked out several layers of plastic bags from my overflowing plastic stash bags, fused them with the iron and then heat gunned them to distress; then I looked at the holes and realised it needed another colour behind to show them up, so I ironed a blue bag on the back.  I don't actually like it but it gives me some experience in this technique and I can see the potential when I start including sythetic textiles in with the plastic - the next step.  The layers then will look quite interesting.  It's going to be really hot all week in Adelaide (33 degrees to 36 all week) so don't know when I will feel like heating up the room again.
