Friendly Plastic..... thats just what it is!

What a fantastic day Saturday turned out to be..... I was lucky enough to get a place on a workshop with Liz Welch at the Rainhill Stampers. I had never used FP before and it was magic... its is so versatile, forgiving and best of all great FUN. We softened, shaped, rolled, stretched, stamped, oozed (!). There were gasps of delight coming from all sides of the room, amazed at what you could produce with hot water, a skillet and a heat gun. Liz showed so many techniques with foils, slivers of this and that, you could truly make works of art....... you don't waste any of the FP you can even use up the tiniest of pieces.... The girls were great fun as always, helpful and encouraging...... The pictures don't really do justice to the colours or the techniques. Try it if you can, it really is worth and Liz is a great teacher. Thanks Liz. Ciao


  1. Love the pieces you made. Aren't there some fab colours?! You got the pleated one perfect... I chucked mine!

  2. Glad to see you had a good time using AMACO's Friendly Plastic! It really is a very versatile material and so easy to use with a little instruction. Can't wait to see what else you come up with using Friendly Plastic!
