Ive been collecting the #6 plastic for awhile now so that I could finally try shrink plastic. I have had one project done for months now but I was to terrified to put it in the oven incase it didnt work..I was going to be devistated if it didnt work out. So I tested two peices that I was equally attached to but those ended up in the garbage. They all came out awful first try in the oven, but I decided to try remelting them but this time with a heat gun. Needless to say that came out much better I was even able to make the circle that came out a square a somewhat circle again! Anyways that was my rant...onto pictures They took FOREVER to get decent pictures of by the way!
All the charms are based off of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It took me forever to get it to hang the way I wanted it to. It is the Triforce, Spiritual stones and Six medallions that you collect through the game. Top: Triforce, Middle: Kokiri's Emerald, Goron's Ruby, and Zora's Sapphire and Bottom: Light, Forest, Fire, Water, Spirit and Shadow Medallions. I had intended to make it a bracelet but it evolved. Tell me is it too much?
My Mass Effect earrings Renegade and Paragon. If youve never played: if your character does enough bad actions they are a renegade and if they do good actions they are a paragon. I like a little bit of both. This is the second try at these, the first are the ones that got thrown out. The original renegade one I did was green but I decided to go red for the new one.
On monday I got so excited when Cliffy B showed the Gears of War 3 trailer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that a small part of me got very very sad that my COG tags arent done yet (Im waiting for my brothers assistance because theres no way Im doing the last step alone!)...so I decided I needed something Gears of War like right now. Its the gnasher, torque bow, lancer and longshot. The torque bow and lancer really should have done opposite things..the lance became very chubby and the torque bow became very long..
The only one that I made that isnt based on a game..The little fishie and the plant are on one side, the bubbles and water are on the other. I made the necklace awhile ago but I wasnt sure if I liked the pendant so I had an idea for this one and I think it looks alot better. So far this is the best I could get for a detail shot.
I sealed them all with clear nail polish because I read you can do that and its all that I had. I wasnt sure if I was going to seal them but two of them started to smudge..
