Anyone know of this craft product ? You use wire to make shapes then dip the wires into the stuff and it forms like a kind of plastic glass

It’s good for making flowers
It might be bubble something

we used to do it with white glue, maybe diluted with water, and food colouring, and dip the wires into that

I remember begging for this for Christmas as a kid. I could never get it to work and I was so disappointed.

My sister made the much better choice of asking for the foolproof Shaker Maker which made it even worse.

Ooh Fantasy Dip! I had the ideas book as well.. many a happy afternoon was spent making flowers and sniffing the pungent fumes Grin

I remember this too from the 70’s but don’t remember it being called fantasy dip!

Ooh, I got a set of this for Christmas in 70s. I loved it, I can still recall the smell of the paint stuff.

Isnt that just epoxy resin? Jewellers use it. Artists use it. You can get it lots and lots of places.

This was a toy back around 1975 or so. I was given a box of this for my birthday. It worked pretty well as I remember. (though I never made anything as nice as this video)
