A Blast from the Past... old school Friendly Plastic
These flower earrings were made using hot water, they were one of the first things I ever made with Friendly Plastic. I thought they were magnificent. They were almost bigger than my ears, but I thought I looked great in them.
These earrings were marbled using the oven method for heating the plastic and then they were re-softened in hot water to create a free form design. These were my favorite pair of earrings.
Remember these faces... well those of you who have been around Friendly Plastic or even crafting for a number of years , do.
Oh my... did we ever doll these babies up. They were so popular back then. Isn't funny how time and style has changed. Thank heavens! Everything was bigger and bolder back then. I made this very large broach for my sister. And bless her heart, she saved it. It really is fun taking a look back at what was then. Hope you enjoy this little blast from the past.
