Acrylic plastic is bent to support exhibit labels and artifacts. The sides of a pre-cut strip of acrylic plastic are filed to remove rough edges. The center of the strip is then scored with a knife. The scored strip is heated until it begins to soften, and is bent by hand to the desired angle using a jig.
This skill is used in producing museum exhibits exhibits – in fact we need your help with an exhibit immediately, so you will be able to use your new skills right away!
