A few years back, maker Peter Brown created a set of coasters that he cast from bubble wrap. He’s decided to revisit the project now that he’s got more experience with resin, and the new ones look even more frustratingly realistic than the originals – at least before he added the colored resin.
THE BEST Bubble Wrap
We’ve seen lots of things fed into industrial shredders over the years, but we’re thinking that bubble wrap might be the most satisfying item yet. After tossing some random toys into their shredder, Press Tube gets down to business at the 2-minute mark by feeding it a 50-meter roll of the noisy packing material.
It’s hard to resist popping bubble wrap. The stuff is great for packing breakables too, but we’d never suggest using it to pull a hot pan out of the oven. Fred & Friends‘ bubble wrap oven mitt is made from heat-shielding silicone, so you won’t get burned. Sadly, it’s not poppable.
