22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / New plastic on: May 17, 2008 01:18:28 PM
I got an accidental day off today when my gig was canceled... so I sat around and decided to draw on some shrinky dink plastic...   I used prisma color pencils, and a (get this) Bic brand Mark-it pen... I know that everyone loves sharpies(as do I) but I have found that the black Bic Mark-it pens work wonders on top of the prisma colored pencils... I like them better for shrinky dink work...

This is my first time ever using Shrinky Dink Brand... usually I buy the off brand that they sell at Ben Franklin's..   

things that I love about Shrinky Brand:
-Already roughed and ready!  no sanding!
-holds color great!
-nice and thick

things that I don't like about Shrinky Brand:
-seems to be more fragile than off brand...
-tears easily when trying to cut and turn sissors..
-couldn't cut through it with my x-acto knife easily... curvey shapes were a challenge.

And without further ado(sp?) here are my new shrinky drawings.

NOTE: these have not yet been shrunk, I'm pretty excited to see just how intense the colors come out AFTER I shrink them! 

-I'll try to remember to add pics later of the finished products..

super cool!  I just got some acrylic and had planned on using it to make a box, I didn't even think to cut it into other stuff... DUH!

Love yalls style!

ps... do you think my dremel will cut this stuff?  Or should I get a saw like yours to make my box?

I've done this before too! 

I love reusing the soda bottles for stuff.. did you know that there are companies that recycle them into clothing??

super cool!

you did a great job!

yay!  Very clever to use the packaging Smiley

I just got a book on doing resin from barnes and noble.. great read thus far Smiley  now I just have to actually make something Smiley

I like that you did the little picture out of the sprikles, very cute!

And finally, a use for those nasty bunny candies! I hate those.. they taste gross.

I've been collecting random things to try and shove into the resin once I get around to playing with it..

Kudos!  Lovely as always Smiley

I think it's VERY fair of you Strawberry!!

I see nothing wrong with keeping your sources or techniques to yourself.  There's no rule that you have to share them!  You worked hard to make such nice pieces, and it shows. 

Figuring out how to do something is half the challenge, and half of the FUN of crafting!  It's that sense of accomplishment when you're like, "yea!  I figured it out!  It looks great!  Oh, I'm so happy with it!   I hope that it inspires others to be creative and experiment."

You said plenty when you said Ebay and Etsy... that's all you really needed to say Smiley   I think your work is super fun and I wish you the best of luck!
