Hey. so yeah, it's summer. spending all my time crafting.

I used the last of my shrinky dink plastic. recycled #6 plastic salad cover actually.
I used acrylic to paint it before popping them into the oven. I made smaller circles to glue onto the bigger charms.

Heres the photos:



hot glue gun got a little messy. oh well.

C&C please.

I love the hand painted artisian-ness of the heart links!
How did you know that your salad conatined plastic would shrink?
Is it because it was #6 plastic?

Cool bracelet! I've been checking all my "to go" containers, and I keep getting dissed with the stupid #1 plastic.
I like how you stacked the circles.

i absolutely love this!

Most of the clear plastic tops from grocery store cakes as well as chinese takeout lids are also #6.

I LOVE how hand painted this looks. It's awesome!

I'm a little confused though. I feel like salad covers are so much thinner than your bracelet actually is. Did you layer them?

They thicken up quite a bit when they shrink in the oven, so that makes them thicker. I use #6 plastic as often as I can find it...lately almost everything has been #1 plastic, though.

Love the look of this bracelet! It looks so spontaneous! And I love the color combinations!
I had no idea you could successfully use acrylic paints and have them still work! How ever did you discover that?

Wow, this turned out well. I've never used acrylic paint on mine before because I wasn't sure how it'd turn out. It looks like it turns out really well.
And I'll have to start looking for #6 plastic. I just always buy the shrinky dink plastic sheets at the store, but may as well reuse!
Very nice.
