Then bam, you've formed the acrylic to your specific desire(s) <- Bow chicka wow wow.

^Though if you try the above you'd need some guidelines to follow, like temps, duration of heating, gloves, what you use as a base to bake the acrylic on(cardboard maybe?), what material/object would be suitable to use as a mold, and ect ect...

Here's an interesting guide I just found,

-EDIT- BTW glad you didn't take offense to the mama's hairdryer jab, sometimes I can't help myself, I love mama jokes/jabs.
