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..

Hard to tell how big they are to know how small they will be once they are shrunk, but they would be cool in the window hanging by fish line as sun catchers. The pink and yellow design would work great for a friend of mine who does stained glass work.

Love the intense colours.

Thanks, and I'm so glad that you said that!  Stained glass was the inspiration for most of these!  yay!

I don't know what prisma color pencils are, but I've seen two posts where they were used on shrink plastic, and I simply must find some! These are gorgeous, btw. I can't wait to see the final product! They're going to be beautiful. Smiley
