4  Acrylic Charm, heart-y shamrock! [My 2nd attempt!] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by christinashaw on: August 07, 2009 03:49:23 PM
Okay here it goes!!  Grin  First, I just wanted to say the it was in the oven at 325 for 6 minutes, and it didnt even move! So I took the pyrex off and let it shrink up, then ofcourse it curled up! I accepted defeat and took it out of the oven and then I realized it was plyable! So I put the pyrex on top of it AFTER it was already shrunk and curled up!! I could never do this before, but this was the longest it had been in the oven! So it flattened out from the wieght of the pyrex! Okay here goes the goodies! let me know!
 
Before I cooked it


And the final product! What do you all think?  Kiss

Two things!:
         First, I was wondering if anyone could send me the direction to where I could find printable acrylic sheets, similar to shrinky dink but with out the shrink. Also if there is any tutorials out there on whats the best method in coloring and cutting that would be upmost helpfull! This is the finished product that I am trying to achieve:






    Secondly, I too was wondering how something like this ( http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5775648 ) was made. If it is plastic #6 then how would you get the plastic? Obviously the threads have been talked about getting it from salad bars but is there any way to get flat sheets? Also if ( http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5775648 ) was made from plastic #6 then it had to be either a) printed, b) colored with sharpies, or c) with paints, and the paint option isn't likely because it isn't as smooth, dried. Okay please leave your feed back! thanks!  Kiss

Hey guys, I have a question or two:
Do you guys think this is shrinky dink?


also what do you think they used to color it? I see that everyone has been using colored pencils but the kind of shrinky dink i have is shiny and smooth on both sides, is this the wrong kind? Id really appreciate any help you guys can offer! Thanks

Hello, thanks for trying to help. i'm trying to figure out how this item is created:

I did not creat this or had anything to do with anything. I understand the chain, the paint ect. I just dont know how you get a piece of plastic in this shape? How would a person get plastic sheets? How do you cut it? thanks!!
