They turned out great!

I tried making a ring, but it didn't work out the way I wanted. Sometimes it shrinks unevenly, well it did with me.

Aren't you worried that the text and pictures will come of? Or are you going to seal it?

thanks !

hmm, it never shrinked unevenly for me , so im not sure how to solve that >o<

yes ! i added a coat on it , so make it " shine " and protect it ! and preferably, you would want to use permanent ink !

secret alternative : nail polish would work too !

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.
