Overview

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.

    I loved this book. There are so many cute ideas in it. I can't wait to make the jewelery. And then there are cute ideas for purses and night lights that my kids loved!!! It is one of the best craft books I have seen. There instructions are so easy, clear and not so scattered like other books are! A very good book!
