Step 1 - small collage

Step 2 - drawing unshrinked

Step 3 - the shrink

Step 4 - wear it


I almost forgot to say, that this made from shrink plastic, of course

Hahaha! I love the figurine! You did an awesome job with replicating the figure on the shrink plastic and it turned out wonderfully!

Wow.  That turned out great!  You're very talented.  What sort of pen or ink did you use for the drawing?

I sanded one side of the plastic with extra fine sandpaper (800) and then just used a pencil (HB) and crayon for some details.

How did you get the hole for the jump ring? Whenever I make complicated cuts or curves the plastic breaks. And I have to cut a hole into far into the plastic surface.

I made the hole with an ordinary puncher before I started drawing and positioned his head/the collage beneath the hole so that there would be enough space. I cut it with a sharp nail scissor and a scalpel but I think an x-acto knife with a fresh blade would work as well.
