Embedded materials in polystyrene

I just watched “Create precious jewellery from shredded CD CASES.”

I was wondering if you could encase other materials in the polystyrene? Similar to what is done with epoxy? For example: cloth with a colorful print sandwiched in layers of clear polystyrene or possibly small metal parts.
Any thoughts on this?


Possible, but you create a nasty end product with plastic and other materials mixed. Way more difficult to recycle again. You can play a lot with using other colored pieces of PS.
