WOW!  That's really amazing.  I made buttons out of that before in highschool for my catholic school uniform.  they broke off but it was like a little rebellious gesture.  can't wati to see what else you come up with.  i must look into shrinky dinks again!

i think the original was made of black mirror acrylic...


I had to looks for ages to find shrink-plastic in the U.K (i think they call it shrinky-dinks in the U.S) but I found some at: www.lainesworld.co.uk, they do a really good selection pack!

thanks for your comments!!

To me, yours looks better than the official version.

This makes me think that black shrink plastic must have a lot of other unrealized possibilities...
