so last night i decided to break out the shrinky dinks and finally make this one necklace i had been wanting to make for ages!!! its my fave band alexisonfire's latest album art the cover is a cardinal the inside sleve is a crow, anyway enuf of my talking here are the piccys



it was my moms birthday yesterday and she saw the crow and asked for one to hang from her rear view mirror in her car



bat mid flight


bat mid flap



playdead bunny



famous stars n straps logo to match a t shirt i have


card suit knucks



with 10cent peice for size


hello kitty candy lip gloss necklaces



and for some reason i decided i wanted to make a skeleton shrinky dink hand complete with arms an heres what i ended up with...


only two things i did wrong, on the pinky i punched the holes too close to the edge on two peices and they snapped other than that i think it came out well, but dayammm was it fiddly!

enjoy!
comments and crit welcome! check out my other posts!

i just use the normal shrinky dinks but they are hard to get in australia
ive sanded the white ones with a nail file once and printed on it but could only get the black and white to work no colour

i burn myself alot when i bake them tho coz i make things so fidly or long they curl and stuff lol

but it takes patience lol like the two finger bones i hav to redo lol

Your shrink-foo is strong, my child.  LOVE these!  The bats and crow are my faves.  I need a bat necklace.  I used to have all kinds of goth jewelry, but now I'm down to a studded bracelet and some jelly black plastic barbed wire bracelets and a black bead n chain necklace Cheesy

I SO need to work up the courage to do shrinky dinks.  I'm afraid of spending the cheese on the stuff, royally screwing it up, and then being out that money Undecided  I also can't draw worth a cat's ass, so I may try the printable stuff first.

Keep 'em comin'!  Your projects rock out!

rofls shrink-foo.... Nice one lmao i might put the bats on etsy n make more crows or we could swap  somethn if u want one?

Shrinky dinks r almost impossible to get here, i cant get the printer kind so ive sanded the white ones wit a nail file, it worked good in black n white but not colour. But i pay like 9$ for 5 sheets of black n the same for 4 gloss white n they do shrink sooooo much n i cant get nice colours like the arm was the length of the sheet..... N i trace pics, i hav a secret how i transfer them onto the plastic =p n apparently there best to if u wanna colour them paint with acrylic paints once there shrunk n spray seal them
