After a reader tweeted me about Plasti-dip, I immediately bought some and got to dippin'. After seeing these bold necklaces, I knew I wanted to create a half metal/half plastic version. I must admit that the plastic coating is some serious stuff and should only be handled by adults in a well ventilated area, but I was pretty stoked with the final product.
Plasti-dip and color tint
Chain necklace or bracelet
Aluminum can (I use one for peanuts, note that plastic will not work, the Plasti-dip will eat through it)
Mix your first color by pouring 1/4 of the Plasiti-dip into the peanut container
Then add some coloring and mix with the spoon till you reach your desired color
Next dip your chain in, then let excess drip off for at least a minute
Continue to hold and let harden for 5 minutes
Before wearing, let sit overnight to completely dry.
Mix additional colors in a new container.
