Are you needing a quick, good value present to give to a creative friend? I have just put up on the website a really special limited time offer of one of my DVDs plus a kit for the amazingly small amount of £10. The DVD including the kit usually cost £16.95, but I thought you could do with a great bargain to cheer the spirits with all the doom and gloom surrounding us at the moment. The DVD is Bend It Make It – Cards and the kit includes an embossing tool and some sticks of Friendly Plastic. Although the DVD is aimed at card makers it covers all sorts of Friendly Plastic techniques including my own Lacework and Oooze! All the techniques can be used for much more than card making. Take a look at the images below and you will see some of the things that the DVD covers.
Turn this cute little cat into a brooch
The hot water piecing method used to make the kite is great for creating boxes too
This little free form doll is a great way to learn how to use hot water and manipulate the plastic in your hands, as well as learning how to make beads on strings.
Stamping, texturing and colouring are all on the agenda with this masculine card
Create texture using unusual items, as well as learn how to put FP onto wire
Oooze! is my extruding technique showcased here with four little motifs using Angelina Fibres
Another of my own developments – Lacework creates a delicate filigree effect perfect for everything from small items of jewellery through boxes and vessels to textile applications and mask making. The built in holes are designed for stitching into. It also makes a little bit of FP go a long way.
Loads of ideas, it just needs you to try them out and take them in your own direction. Just to remind you that this offer will only last until December 31st, so make the most of it! You can read more about the DVE and see a clip on the website.
