Topics: Friendly Plastic, Finishing

Q.
I would like to try the friendly plastic and was wondering if I make some dangles for earrings would you recommend using grommets to finish the holes?

A.
Adding grommets will not only finish the hole and give a professional look to your design it will also extend the wear that you might find occurs over time.

A light coating of two-part epoxy tested best when adding grommets to Friendly Plastic®. Dip one grommet into prepared epoxy, wait about one minute then place the grommet into one side of the hole. Repeat adding a second grommet to the other side of the bead hole.
