Today on Cool2Craft I made a very fun and playful vintage style brooch with Friendly Plastic and one of my favorite techniques. Enjoy the video – courtesy of Tiffany Windsor of Cool2Craft.

It’s been an awesome year and my privledge to be one of the featured guests on Tiffany’s show. January 3 begins the NEW SEASON on the Cool2Craft NETWORK!
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?
Kits and Friendly Plastic supplies can be purchased at the CrafTECH University Craft-E store.
I hope you enjoyed this episode of Friendly Plastic TV. I always welcome your comments and suggestions for show segments.
