Mixed-media artists and DIY crafters will be excited about the endless possibilities of working with a variety of plastic materials - acrylic sheeting, (a.k.a. Plexiglas,) clear vinyl and shrink plastic. Readers will be amazed that the aesthetic of projects like those featured in Sally Jean Alexander's "Pretty Little Things" (Bookscan RTD, 9,862) can be achieved with Plexiglas rather than glass - and with far less expense and intimidation. The reader will be guided through twenty-five step-by-step projects that show just see how easy and forgiving to work with plastic is. The reader will learn to make several necklaces, bracelets, earrings, a belt, purses, a tote bag, wind chime, artist trading cards, a journal and more by combining plastic with other materials such as fabric, wire, beads, paper and other mixed-media supplies.
