Dippity Glass crafts is one of the popular hobbies back in the 70s. It is also known as “Wire Dip Craft”, “Dip It Fantasy Film”, “Dippity Glass”, “Formafilm” and “Fun Film”. However the products for this craft now is almost nowhere to be found now. In my own Google research I discovered that it is hardly available even in online stores. If you are looking to buy one for yourself, do search under the “dip it fantasy film” keyword, you may be lucky to find one or two websites selling the products.
Dip-it film crafts is not so archaic in Malaysia albeit many resources recorded that the crafts started back in the mid-70s. It has somehow survive the test of time and as of today it is still making its way into elegant and classy weddings as decorations. Dip-it flower is made into the form of wedding bouquet, hand bouquet, centre piece, gifts decoration and other form of decorations. While maintaining its original old techniques of dipping a metal wire in the form of petals into the liquid plastic other new techniques are created and incorporated in order to produce a variety of wonderful results.
A small community of this crafts lovers is flourishing in Malaysia even though slowly but undoubtedly strong enough to survive the crafts in many years to come. Some are offering training classes which charges between a fifty dollars to two hundred and fifty dollars depending on the expertise of the trainer. Despite the scarcely available raw materials for the crafts, the demands for the handmade flowers is substantially growing more and more over time.
