These are my first attempts at shrinky dinks.


I printed off three images from some of my favorite animes - Alita from Battle Angel Alita, Vash the Stampede from Trigun, and SailorJupiter from SailorMoon. These are protected by several layers of clear nailpolish and finished with some wire-strung beads and chain.
I also had a picture of White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland that I had tried, but it ended up folding on itself during the process Sad and I couldn't save it.
I loved working with the shrinky dinks! They're fun and I can see a lot of potential for this art medium!

Wow - these are fab! I've just bought some polyshrink plastic, but I haven't tried it out yet. I would never have guessed these were your first go at it!  Smiley

Wonderful idea! You really captured those pictures well on the shrinky dinks. It's inspired me to make a fun gift for a friend that recently had a birthday. Thanks you and this ROCKS!

Thanks everyone for the compliments! I enjoyed making these. The best part was scouring the web for the pictures I wanted to use! So many pretty pictures, so little time -_-;;
