Friendly PlasticŪ Designer Sticks are a non-toxic plastic that can be used to create exciting jewelry, accessories, home decor, and wearable art projects. Finished pieces made with Friendly Plastic can be used alone or combined with jewelry findings, picture frames, porcelain-like faces or anything that pleases your imagination.

Free form designs can be made with Friendly Plastic Designer Sticks by softening them in warm water and then shaping with your hands, craft tools or any household object. Friendly Plastic Designer Sticks can also be used to create two-dimensional designs by layering different colors then carefully placing your design on a cookie sheet and baking in a standard or toaster oven. You can also soften the plastic on a non-stick baking sheet on top of an electric griddle. Each method will achieve different results.

Friendly Plastic Designer Sticks come in a beautiful array of metallic colors. Each stick measures 1-1/2" x 7". Sold by the piece, there are price breaks when you order 10, 20 or 40 sticks of the same color.

We also carry three assortments of solid & print metallics by the pound.

Meltable Friendly Plastic pellets give crafters the ability to sculpt with real, firm plastic as if it were clay. For jewelry makers who like the flexibility of clay but would prefer a more durable, kid-safe medium, Friendly Plastic pellets are ideal for the creation of beads, pendants and earrings.

Many inventors, sculptors, scientists and students use Friendly Plastic pellets to make replacement tools, parts, and prototypes. Problem-solving and home repairs can be just as easy! Add to warm water for sculpting or pressing into a mold. Friendly Plastic Pellets are completely reusable. Simply re-soften and start over. Perfect for children's projects. Non-toxic. Easy-to-follow instructions included.

Create your own color by adding alcohol inks, permanent inks, acrylic paints, fine glitter powders, and mica powders. Blend a variety of your own colors for beautiful marbleized pieces.

Three Friendly Plastic Design Techniques

Hot Water Method:

  1. Heat water to 140 degrees - 150 degrees F.
  2. Place one stick into water (color side down) for about 30-60 seconds.
  3. Remove from water with wet fingers. Shape with fingers or use wet tools or stamps to texture.
  4. Cool quickly in cold water for 3-5 seconds. Friendly Plastic can be re-softened in hot water.

Oven Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
  2. Cut Friendly Plastic sticks into desired shapes and place on a non- stick baking sheet.
  3. Soften Friendly Plastic in the oven for 3 minutes.
  4. Blend the colors if desired.
  5. Before removing from baking sheet, cool quickly with water or allow to cool naturally.

Griddle Method:

  1. Preheat electric griddle to 300 degrees F.
  2. Cut Friendly Plastic sticks into desired shapes and place on a non- stick baking sheet.
  3. Soften Friendly Plastic on a non-stick baking sheet on top of the griddle.
  4. Leaving the baking sheet on the griddle, blend the softened plastic.
  5. Remove baking sheet from heat and let plastic cool. Remove from baking sheet.

CAUTION: Friendly Plastic will soften or melt at approximately 100 degrees F (38 degrees C).
DO NOT expose sticks to direct sunlight or area of concentrated heat such as in a closed car.

IMPORTANT: Metallic sticks will lose their metallic appearance if softened too long.  Softened plastic sticks cannot be separated if they are allowed to touch.  Handle softened sticks carefully..
