BOOK REVIEW: Friendly Plastic for Starters, Book 1 by Liz Welch
Published by Rarebird, ltd
In this 48 page how to book, Liz features a variety of personally developed techniques in working with Friendly Plastic which are extremely helpful for beginners, as the title represents, but also offer a variety of ideas for those already familiar with this plastic medium.
She details all the tools and materials you will need in working for Friendly Plastic, most of which are commonly found in stores and in your home. She steps you through all the basics that you need to know such as heating methods, which heating techniques work best for a particular project.
She has really poured her heart and soul into this book and it shows.
I would give it a TWO THUMBS UP and say that this is one book that you should definately have in your collection for reference.
She shares her techniques for creating patchwork designs, mosaic patterns and beads.
Among my favorite techniques is Liz's OOZE technique, because it is so versatile and adds so much color and detail to jewelry as well as your mixed media projects.
Liz also has created video DVD's.
