The Steampunk Heart

Follow Me on Pinterest


In keeping with our Steampunk Theme, which is gaining popularity, Steampunk accessories are easy to create using Friendly Plastic.  In this video, you'll learn how easy it is to color Friendly Plastic Pellets to create beautiful steampunk themed jewelry for costuming and cosplay.

Linda, recently attended a Visioncon conference in Missouri where she met all kinds of Steampunkers and Cosplayers.  "It was a great experience to see everyone dressed in costume! I was blown away by the creativity and the materials that they used and thought Friendly Plastic would be perfect for this theme!" she said.


Friendly Plastic softens when heated and maintains it's shape when cooled.  It can be heated and re-heated multiple times as needed to complete your project.

Simply colorize your Friendly Plastic pellets by massaging in mica powders in your favorite colors.  Roll the Friendly Plastic into a ball and press inside a bottle cap.  If needed, reheat until the plastic becomes soft again and press in watch parts and gears.  Glue bottle cap to a focal piece and attach to a chain for necklace or to a leather cuff with glue.
