Friendly Plastic TV Video - Dimensional Pendants with decorative foils

In the past we've worked alot on 2-dimensional designs which primarily focused on layering or putting a variety of mediums on top of the Friendly Plastic to alter the look of it in some way.  In this video, we take that a step further. 

I love the look of stretching and crackling the Friendly Plastic, but often this results in the colors of the foil dulling when the black background pulls up through.  To solve this and to add a decorative, somewhat watercolor wash effect, I tried nail polishes.  The results are beautiful and the polishes fix the foil so that the colors remain bright.  Add a touch of decorative foil and you've created one of a kind - gorgeous pendants - in any color...and my I add that you can make these in 30 minutes or less??  Great HUH? 

I hope you enjoyed this episode of Friendly Plastic TV.  I always welcome your comments and suggestions for show segments.
