Tubing

Post by Forbiddance » Sat Jul 31, 2010 4:39 pm

I just bought some tubing and went to try installing it on a mixed media wig im making but it curls inward from how it was packaged i guess.. i was wondering if there was a way to straighten it out.

Wet heat I'm guessing, hot water.

I went to pour boiling water over them but my boyfriend came up with a faster but way more dangerous method. He basically sucked boiling water half-way up the tube and held it like you would with a straw (finger over the top). Then he let the water out and did the same thing from the other end. Last step, stretching the hot tube while blowing through it so it could cool that way. <3 thanks baby xD
