Stone Effects....In Friendly Plastic? Is this for Real?

Hard to believe isn't it? At first glance you might think it's a wirewrapped stone....then again, you might perceive it as polymer clay.....but really IS Friendly Plastic!

Drawing from my background in polymer clay, last week I decided to have a What IF day? What if I mix in embossing powder....What if I add some gold leafing? What if...What if..What if!....

Because the properties of Friendly Plastic are the complete opposite for polymer clay the techniques needed some tweeking in order to get a similar result.

If you are like me......and want instant gratification...then Friendly Plastic is for you!
Because I really want to get the word out on Friendly Plastic Pellets, I'm extending my free offer for a 1 ounce sample pack of pellets. Just visit my Etsy store to order.
To learn how to work with the pellets, just click a the top of the blog to view our YouTube videos

Tips for Friendly Plastic? Get them in!!

Over the past several months Jana Ewy has been compiling information for a Friendly Plastic Encyclopedia loaded with information specifically related to working Friendly Plastic. So....if you have a related tip that you've developed or found helpful, please send it in.

Jana writes:

I am making a last call for Friendly Plastic techniques. If you have a technique that you have developed and would like to have included in the FP E-cyclopedia, you better hurry. This Friday, the 26th is the last day. I am making the final edits and will have the Completed E-cyclopedia ready on the 4th of July. Yeah!!!!! Please send any additions to

Don't despair... if you don't make the deadline. I will be making updates every 6 months.
So in the meantime if you develope a technique or have tips and tricks to share, Please feel free to send them to me at the above address, and they will be included in the next revision.

As for techniques... all I am asking for is basic (general) how-to information, not a complete step by step guide. The designer of each technique will be acknowledged and credited for developing their specific technique, so give it a good name. A link to your blog or website will also be provided, so that anyone interested in learning more about you, and your work, can find you. I will also need you to provide 1 photo of a finished piece showing the technique.

Thanks for your input, this is going to be a very enter-active document, and I hope everyone will benefits from it. It has been a labor of love, sweat and a few tears.

The Friendly Plastic E-cyclopedia will be available right here for your viewing. Fire works and all, on the 4th of JULY.

If you haven't had a chance to see what Friendly Plastic is all about...check out our blog!!

Free Sample of Friendly Plastic Pellets to the first 25 people!

FREE! NO! It's NOT a typo! FREE FRIENDLY PLASTIC PELLETS in a 1 ounce Sample pack available to the first 25 people who respond. The only thing I ask is that you send $3.99 for shipping and handling if you are in the US and $4.99 if you are International. This helps defer the packaging and cost of shipping.

I love the pellets and I know you will too! This blog features lots of projects to create with just 1 ounce of pellets....
