Simply Stamped Friendly Plastic
One of the most frequently asked questions I have received is "is Friendly Plastic easy to use?" and the answer is...YES YES YES!
Let me give you a little personal side of me........personally.......
The past couple of weeks, I've been recovering from a major surgery.....everything went very very well...and Im feeling very well. It's amazing that in this day and age, major surgery can be performed in a day and you're back at home in your own bed by the evening. The problem with this kind of technology is that I felt TOO good...and I still feel "TOO" good, but I have to take it easy. My body isn't that good and is healing.
So that limits what I can do. I can however sit at a table and create. Mariah and I spent countless hours at the kitchen table creating a variety of things and one thing that hit me like a ton of bricks was "SIMPLE". We took simple images and created amazing contemporary greeting cards.
So what does this have to do with Friendly Plastic? It's "SIMPLE"... sometimes we get all caught up in the embellishments and how many techniques we can pile into one project that we forget "simple", "quick", "easy"...... This piece of jewelry is "simple" - simply a piece of Friendly Plastic heated, stamped, cooled, cut and then a little bit of Rub N' Buff on the highlights. A little bit of patina, some filagree and your done! Simple, easy and quick - you can have this pendant made in 30 minutes. How's that for a last minute gift or accessory.....
So remember the word of the day.....SIMPLE!....
I bet you'll create something "simply" amazing! SHOW ME!!!
