Class is in session for an industrial twist on mixed-media art

Grab a seat in the front row and get ready to take notes: You're about to be introduced to Plexiglas as you've never seen it before. Quickly gaining popularity among crafters and do-it-yourselfers, acrylic sheeting (commonly known as Plexiglas) is more versatile, inexpensive and forgiving to work with than glass - but can be used to create many of the same effects. With an easy-to-follow techniques section and nearly 30 step-by-step projects, Plexi Class teaches you how to combine Plexiglas with vinyl, shrink plastic and other unexpected elements to create refreshingly unique jewelry and accessories.

Add texture, depth and color to distressed acrylic with pretty tissue paper, a favorite newspaper clipping or painted phonebook pages.

Combine plastics with beads and wire for surprisingly light and delicate earrings, bracelets, pendants and more.

Stamp and emboss Plexiglas charms for dimensional, wearable works of art.

Heat and bend acrylic for sleek and simple rings, hair accessories and even a nightlight.

All you need are a few simple tools and materials to get started. Let Plexi Class be your study guide for mastering this ultramodern medium.

Synopsis:

Mixed-media artists and DIY crafters will be excited about all the endless possibilities of working with a variety of plastic materials such as acrylic sheeting (otherwise known as Plexiglas), clear vinyl and even shrink plastic. In Sexy Plexi, readers will be amazed at the versatility of these various plastics, the ease of use and forgiveness plastic possesses, and how plastics can mimic glass in numerous applications. The author guides readers through 25 step-by-step projects including popular DIY craft items such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, a belt, purses, a tote bag, wind chimes, artist trading cards and more. Techniques for combining plastic with other mixed-media items such as fabric, beads, wire and paper are covered throughout. Artists will appreciate Tonias non-intimidating style and enjoy creating projects with plastic as the base foundation.
