I’ve just recently rediscovered how amazing Friendly Plastic is after working with it to create those scrumptious Debbie Sanders inspired faux lampwork beads….
I played around with this along time ago but finally got around to getting some pics to share with everyone.
Here’s what you’ll need:
A pendant bezel
Some friendly plastic
Clear Embossing Powder and spoon
|Gather your supplies.
|Cut up small pieces of friendly plastic and position in your bezel. Try to make sure the coloured side is facing upwards.
|Pop in an oven for 10 minutes or until the friendly plastic melts. My oven was set at 150 degrees celcius. Note there are a few blank spots around the edges where the friendly plastic didn’t melt right up to the bezel edge.
|Add more friendly plastic and reheat.
|Pick up some clear embossing powder in a spoon and sprinkle onto the top of the bezel.
|Wipe off all the excess and smooth over the top. Pop in your oven again to melt – another 10 minutes should be fine.
|Leave your pendant to cool and then add your favourite cord or string to finish.
