I have always had a problem with so called "friendly" plastic as when I tried to make anything in the past it has always turned into a black gooey mess and stuck to my fingers. I visit the cool2craft live website on Mondays (see link to the right) and I won an online Fusion Illusion friendly plastic lesson with Linda Peterson. We have been having a mini heatwave here so have been playing with some friendly plastic of a night time. I made these brooches, pendants by heating the plastic in a melting pot with some greaseproof paper..the secret is not too have the pan too hot! (around 110 in the UK). I have used some foil pie dishes and the inside of a tomato puree tube to make the faux metal backgrounds..great fun and it wasnt a gooey mess this time!!
