So what can you end up making with shrinky dinks?

Why this:

shrinky_dinks,crafts,pendant


This was my first successful shrinky dink project. :)

I spent a good chunk of the afternoon just playing and testing. Seeing what the SD material would and wouldn't do before I actually attempted to spend much time on an actual piece.

I love the pendant..but I'm trying to decide if it's done or if I want to tweet it a bit.

Their were casualties:

Those were a couple charms that were starting to come out pretty cool....before they got over cooked.
I had even more tragic trial and error failures...but I forgot to take pictures.

Frank though...he came out pretty cool. :) For you crafty types: The pendant is two pieces fused after shrinking. The image isn't a stamp, nor did I print it out btw. I traced a picture of boris karloff and then tweeked the coloring and shading. So I made the image on one...and shrunk an equal sized piece that had nothing on it. After they shrunk and cooled down I painted green glitter paint on the rough side of both pieces. Letting that dry for a bit I then placed them glitter side together and fused the pieces.

The fusing is the tricky part since they can go from "almost there" to "ACK! THEY ARE RUINED!" in a second.
I kept a sharp eye out and turned down the heat just a bit.

Oh and here is an action shot so you can get a sense of proportion:

I can see much more shrinky dinking in my future. :)
