I know the feeling, am completely addicted too, and was just on my way to make a similar-themed post ; ) I adore your squares pendants especially!

Love the skull!!  My favorite thing to do with Shrinkies (and maybe you do this already) is to draw with sharpies on the shiny side and colored pencils on the rough side.  It gives it a dimensional look.

cherry blossom, your shrinkies are cute Smiley  I <3 the star/vines and rectangular shapes Smiley

ultconsumer, what a good tip!  I usually draw (with sharpie) and colour (with pencils) on the sanded surface.  The next time I play with shrinkies, I'll have to try your suggestion!

Ultconsumer: That sounds very interesting, do you have any photos to illustrate this method? So I can fully get the idea...

This is the only pic of my shrinkies I have right now on photobucket so I'm not sure it does the method justice:


I just looked at it again.  Trust me, it looks really cool IRL.  You can hardly tell in the pick that the pencil is on the back and the Sharpie is on the front.  Just draw your outlines on the front and color it in on the back.  Trust me, it will look cool!

you know I think I tried that with a X-mas ornament of a Looney Tunes character and I think it did turn out nice. Now where did Wiley run off to.
