STEP 1
Drop the pellets into hot water so that they melt and turn into a sticky workable blob.

Note: The water needs to be so hot that it is uncomfortable to touch but not so hot that it will burn.

Tips:
  • Use metal tweezers to prevent having to touch the hot water
  • These sticky pellets won't stick to glass, silicone, Teflon™ or most metals
STEP 2
Lay the Friendly Plastic® modeling blob flat onto a silicone pad then apply some mica powder (or other desired coloring material).

Fold the blob over several times to lock the mica powder into place.

Tip: Drop the blob, mica powder and all, back into the hot water if the blob cools too much to work with.
STEP 3
Press the blob into the desired mold and let cool.
STEP 4
Trim or design as desired. The dried blob may be drilled, painted or sealed with an acrylic seal.

Note: Although the Friendly Plastic® modeling pellets will melt with heat, they won't melt outside on a hot day. However it is not recommended to leave in the car on a hot day.
