I only recently remembered about the existence of shrink plastic. I remember having some as a child and really liking it but it hasn’t crossed my mind since. But then I noticed that quite a few people seem to be making cute jewellery out of this stuff so I had to rush out and grab some. Well, go on Amazon and order it. Same diff.
Here’s my favourite thing I made.
Clearly I was in an unusually positive mood as I gave my clouds silver linings. Look how happy the one with the rainbow is! The 5p is there to indicate how teeny these things are. The only thing I would change is that I forgot about the whole gravity thing, so the raindrop hangs upside-down. It needs to be heavier on the bottom.
My first attempt at jewellery was these sketched mushrooms. Before…
Mushrooms, shiz changing size, smiling things… it was all Alice in Wonderland in my crib last night! I really like the mushrooms but they’re a bit big for my taste. They came out at about 1.5cm, which means they don’t sit nicely on my earlobe. But I did learn that pencil leaves quite a thin and cute line on the shrink plastic, that metallic permanent marker shrinks really well and that white coloured pencil on transparent shrink plastic shows up beautifully.
Now I just need my acrylic sealer to turn up so I can wear these babies out.
