They're fab, well done!

Amaco are the supplier/disty for Friendly Plastic, so you should be able to find a supplier on their website (www.amaco.com) and there's tutorial's on You Tube and a blog dedicated to Friendly Plastic (http://www.friendlyplastic.blogspot.com/) to give you some ideas/inspiration/techniques.

I absolutely LOVE this product and once you get used to the amount of heat to use and with method suits you best (heat gun, hot water, skillet/griddle pan or oven), you'll find yourself an FP addict!

Cheers,

Sara

Very nice.  Were you using plastic-coated wire so that it naturally bonded with the Friendly Plastic?
Friendly Plastic is definitely enjoying a resurgence since it disappeared in the 1980's!  

For anyone else interested in loads of info/inspiration re Friendly Plastic, check out
Jana Ewy's site which has all kinds of tutorials, the basics of heating and using FP, etc:

Jana and Linda Peterson also have a big blog about Friendly Plastic, with more tutorials, suppliers from all over, etc:
