To make the original jewelry made of plastic, you will need ordinary disposable tableware. Or packaging from cakes, plastic bottles, etc.

For the manufacture of accessories you will need to choose the most transparent plastic having a flat surface.

For work, we will need the following tools:

  • ordinary scissors;

  • markers of different colors;
  • acrylic paints and brushes.

In addition, metal chains or pins will be needed so that our product can be hung. As a basis for an ornament, you can use any printout. You will only need to make a blank of plastic of the right size, put the plastic on the drawing and circle it.

To circle the picture, it is better to take a permanent marker, it is resistant to abrasion. Do not forget about the hole for the chain. To work on the icons you need even plastic, corrugated surfaces are not suitable for use. You can use ordinary plastic bottles.

For painting blanks, ordinary markers are not suitable, you need to use permanent. In addition, you can use acrylic paints or use nail polish.

The main stage of work is baking. Bake in a conventional microwave. Once the icons are ready, put them in a baking sheet and place in the oven. On a baking sheet you need to put a parchment sheet. The temperature should be set in the range from 150 to 160 degrees. The time should not exceed two to three minutes. If you expose more, the product will become brittle and will become unusable. After passing the heat treatment, the icons will look very presentable.
