I've been having a blast getting reacquainted with Shrinky Dinks (i.e. polystyrene sheets)!

It may not be apparent from the pictures, but the octopus and tree pendants have a bunch of micro-bubbles in the clear bits!  I'm loving that effect, and I think I will try to make more pendants like that Smiley

I like!  Did you fuse two pieces in the oven?  I get bubbles when I do that, but it looks really good with the clear background.

Those look great!! I love the clean look, they remind me of resin pieces.

Can you give out your trade secrets?
What type of Shrinky Dinks are you using?
And are you doing markers on the front?
And yeah, are you fusing? (I've still not tried that process. I am just starting to play with SDs again.)

Thanks guys Cheesy

To answer your questions:

* I used clear sheets (i.e. not matte or sanded) because I don't care much for that translucent look! 

* All images were done with Sharpies Smiley

* No, I'm not fusing the pieces, but it's on my list of things to try!!!

Thanks for the answers! I think I need to go back to the drawing board with my shrinkies. Smiley

PS - I really loved the tree one! Smiley
