I hand draw each on with micron pens. Then I use watercolor pencils to shade, add water to soften them. It's always fun to see how the color will react when it shrinks. Sometimes they look so much better shrunken.

Pick-N-Mix - they're sold under the brand name shrinkles over here in the UK. You can probably get them in a craft store. Somewhere big like hobbycraft will definitely do them. Or let me know if you can't find any,  we could always do a personal swap and I'll send you some Smiley

Thanks ever so much risingphoenix.
Seriously, i've been wanting to get some for ages but wasn't sure where to get them.
Hobbycraft here i come!

Quick question: for the silver ones... did you spray them with paint before or after you shrunk them?

Very impressive, as is all of your work.  Were you using white shrinky dink?
Also, how are the watercolor pencils holding up? I've never heard of using them as a shrink plastic medium

Wow - your stuff is really gorgeous.
It looks very professionally done.
I'm somewhat confused though - I recently tried shrinkydinks and it said in the packaging not to use water-based anything - water colour pencils or paints, even crayola markers? Also it said to be sure to use an alcohol base pen. Micron's are archival ink, aren't they?
Not trying to argue your technique, just wondering if you did run into any troubles with the colour staying. I'd like to get good at these things Smiley
