Hi there,

I wanted to compare White Strong and Flexible with Elasto Plastic. I did it with a new model very "springy": the Spring Bracelet.
http://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1051853_1054284_1370543391.jpg

The result is really convincing. The Elasto Plastic version can be enlarged so much that the bracelet is really easy to wear.
See the video.
Now it will be perfect for this bracelet once you can have all the colors of Strong and Flexible...

The difference of dimensions between the two models (should be the same) is a little bit disturbing though...

It does look bulkier than the wsf? Start dying it, and tell us how to do it!

Yes, it looks like spaghetti that would have stay too long in boiling water Smile
The diameter is 1.75mm for WSF and 2.15mm for Elasto Plastic (more difficult to measure because you it is elastic). It should have been 2.00mm.
I will try dying it, probably next week.

PS: I realized that "Elasto Plastic" is quite a funny name : "Elasticity" and "Plasticity" are opposite concepts, right?

The video of my dyeing of Elasto Plastic is available.
I also received the Spring Bracelet in all the colors available for Polished Dyed Strong and Flexible.
I added a picture:

@Mike: Thanks. Can't wait to see your work.
@Bart: The video should still be available : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ka5AC668Vs And the results are beyond my expectations Smile
