Hi Greg,
Heating the laminate is pretty easy but do a few test runs on scrap material because you can over heat it and end up with bubbles and cracks. As mentioned above….keep your heat gun or hair dryer moving.
A trick is to use paraffin wax as a heat indicator. Using the wax, make short lines spaced about an inch apart, the length of the bend.
As you apply the heat, the melting wax will give you a good indication on your progress.
Mineral spirits will easily clean off the wax.
