  • Using Friendly Plastic

    Just ordered some ''sticks'' of friendly plastic from forum member Craft Cellar!!

    I intend to play with it during the Bank Holiday weekend if I ever find the time.... I'd like to make some pendants for a craft fair...

    Any advice would be appreciated... At the moment I am just really intrigued!

      Oh no, hope you receive it soon,Theres nothing like experimenting with new goodies.

      I have to admit, I placed an order today, 2 actually, but combined it came to about £23 so its kind of ok.

          It sounds like you are going to have a fun weekend.....I on the other hand are going off camping to Whitby for the weekend. It's cold, it's wet and I would much rather be playing!!!
          I've never used friendly plastic. Is there any way we can see what you have get up to with the plastic.

            Something I've always thought about playing with too.

            Would be very interested in seeing the results!

              mmmm I'll keep the results to myself. I used the oven but it bubbled, stuck to the foil, etc... Anyway I'll put it away for now. I need a heat gun I think, to control the heat better! My hair dryer just blew the stuff away and the hot water technique, well not sure how I can control the temperature....

                    I LOVE friendly plastic, its really versatile. But I think sometimes for pendants etc it runs the risk of looking a bit cheap. But if done nicely it reminds me of dichroic glass.
                    Its really lightweight aswell so when I was making pendants I tried things like putting coiled wire in patterns in it and beads etc, then giving it a light coat of epoxy resin glue.
