Introduction: Plastic Beads From Plastic Bags

Hello Everyone. Today I share with you a two part video on how I create my own Plastic Beads from Recycled Plastic Bags. All you need is a candle, toothpicks, nail enamel or paint,and some plastic bags. Oh and of course a lighter or match.

I like the way these beads turned out because they look very spacey and magickal to me. I used metallic nail enamels but if you prefer you can use acrylic paint or oil paints. I like the metallic nail enamels because of the glittery shine they give and they make my handmade jewelry,handbags and dolls really come to life.

Thank you for watching and I hope this helps anyone who is interested in created a one of a kind bead to use in all of their creative adventures.

Brightest Blessings,

I strongly recommend not heating plastics over open flame especially when you yourself said that the process causes a stink. Many plastics when heated or burned release fumes of dioxins a highly carcinogenic chemical.

Hope you will devise more environment and human friendly alternate method instead of an open flame that is burning the plastic.
