Heating instructions for Friendly Plastic® Pellets:
1. Heat water in electric skillet until temperature reaches 140°F (60°C) to 150°F (66°C) for about five minutes. Set control to 150°F (66°C) or less. Most electric skillets have a low/simmer setting. Test with cooking thermometer. Add one or two drops of cooking oil to water to prevent sticking.
2. Pour Friendly Plastic® pellets into the hot water. Let set in water for about 30 seonds at 150°F (60°C) to 60 seconds at 140°F (60°C) until transparent. Pellets will stick together. Wet hands and remove from water.
3. Shape with your hands or press into a mold. When the desired shape is formed, place into cold water for three to five minutes. Place back in hot water for further shaping.
