Okay, so yeah, I do occasionally browse the Japanese specialty online shopping destination J-List. Sometimes you like to unwind on a Friday night browsing bento and adorable school supplies even though you’re 23. Whatever, we don’t really need to talk about it. But today, in between deciding whether I should buy a tiny bowl with bunnies on it and trying to see if there were any cute notebooks (answer: duh), I found the “Let’s Make Eraser With Microwave” section.
Because, yes, actually it is a whole SECTION. Of products you can buy in order to manufacture your own erasers at home, in a process that’s like a cross between Easy-Bake Oven and Creepy Crawlers.
Here’s another hobby item that’s perfect for all fans who want to make their own creations. This fun tool kit set features a variety of tools that you can use to make your own usable erasers. Use while in school, at home, or simply to admire knowing that you made these things with your own bare hands. To create the erasers, simply apply the clay into the molds and design the eraser as you wish, place the creations inside the cup (that looks like a Chinese takeout box) fill with water, heat in the microwave for 5 mins, dump the hot water and cool down with fresh water.
“I don’t know,” I hear you say. “Erasers are cool and all but not that exciting, you know?” Well have you tried making them SUSHI-SHAPED?
I’m not responsible for what you’ll do with this information, and I’m hoping you won’t really look into my eraser-microwave decisions too closely either. Just saying: it’s a Friday. Anything goes. And while most of being an adult sucks, there is no one to stop us from making eraser with microwave in the privacy of our own homes.
