Lucite, Acrylic Glass, Acrylite,  Perspex, Plexiglas are just different names for the thermoplastic Poly(methyl methacrylate) first developed way back in 1928.  We jewelry makers love frosted beads - especially the bell flower shapes -  made from this material.  Did you know you can also make your own Lucite-like beads with Friendly Plastic?  Linda Peterson's video tutorial shows how easy it is to make a pair of bell flower earrings using this material.

Friendly Plastic has a wonderful property - it goes soft and becomes pliable at low temperatures. I wonder if ordinary coffee mug warmers can be used to keep a shallow pan of warm water to soften the plastic?
