How to make a Friendly Plastic glass pendant







Hey Friendly Plastic Friends!

I hope 2016 has brought you lots of creative time.  I'm back with several Friendly Plastic videos to inspire you in the new year.  First up, learn how easy it is to create faux dichroic glass with Friendly Plastic and a few other materials.

Here's a hint - if the video goes by too fast for you, click the settings button and slow down the viewing speed.  Who knew?  See below for detailed list of materials.


Materials:

Friendly Plastic Pellets® by Amaco®
Deco foil™ transfer sheet - iCraft® manufactured by ThermoWeb
Glass bauble - we used a square glass dome
Outline stickers
Double Stick Tape

Tools:
Griddle or heat tool
Knife
Brayer or roller if using a heat tool
Scissors
Bail
Chain and clasp

Melt pellets on a non stick surface until clear
Apply foil. Burnish down with fingers or brayer.
Cool and remove protective sheet on top, leaving foil on Friendly Plastic
Reheat and position bauble on top of foil.  Cut out with knife.
Remove from heat and let cool.  Remove excess plastic
Apply double stick tape to back side of glass dome/bauble.
Press into place over square
Finish the back side with paint or color of your choice.
Glue bail onto back side and add chain.

You can also pre-color your plastic with any desired color using paint, embossing powders or alcohol inks.

How to make a filigree cuff bracelet with Friendly Plastic



How to make a filigree cuff bracelet with Friendly Plastic


In this episode, we show you how to create a Friendly Plastic cuff bracelet using Friendly Plastic pellets as a base.  It's super easy and only takes a few simple tools to complete.  Have fun combining other elements to create a truly one of a kind mixed media cuff.

You will need a non-stick baking mat for this project.  We also used a medicine bottle to create the cuff band.  Measure your wrist and find a bottle about the same size or just slightly smaller.

Enjoy!
