I am looking for a liquid dip film. When spread across a wire shape (a circle, oval, triangle, and so forth) it dries to a wafer thin film. I would like to make flowers, etc. I found an old book on how to make them and am really interested.
Can someone assist with what it is that I need to ask for and where I would be able to get it? Regards.

Here are the recent answer to this question.
I believe I found what you all are trying to find. It was called Fun Film. I found an old can at a garage sale. No good but bought it anyways to show the label to you all. The company was called Cunningham Art Products, Inc. Stone Mountain, GA 30083
I am including a picture of the can. I remember so well making flowers back in the 60's and early 70's.
Thanks to all you guys who helped. Tahlula, I think that you have found the correct thing. Keeper60, thanks that was how I found this web site was through googling it. We have some great craft shops in South Africa but unfortunately they are in the big centres and I live in a small coastal town so unless you know what you are looking for it is a bit difficult to order it. Thanks so much for your help.

I think you want "Dip It Fantasy Film Resin." It is available at clayalley.com. Good luck with your project.

I am also looking for the plastic acrylic. I used to make flowers with it in the 1960's I have been searching for several years but can't find it. Let me know if you have any luck!

Lynne, do you have craft stores in S.Africa? If not try "google"f or online craft stores to buy what you want. They'll have a phone number to call or search bar to put in what your looking for. If that doesn't work contact me through TF and I'll try to help more. Good luck.
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
I remember when I was young and did a craft to make flower petals and insect wings. You formed the petals or wings with wire, making sure it was completely closed, and then dipped it into a liquid plastic. The container looked like a small paint can with a pry up lid. I can't remember what this plastic liquid is called, can anyone help?

This was back in the 60's, and my guess is there has to be a new product like it, since I also think it was banned due to the carcinogen components. Any help finding this product would be so great. You can see what it is by typing in "fantasy film". Should bring you to a pretty cool site that shows all the neat things you can do with the stuff. Thanks for the help. (11/11/2006)
I need that film for making film flowers. I have a dark blue mobile and need to fix it. Can someone advise me as to where I can purchase it?
