I got an accidental day off today when my gig was canceled... so I sat around and decided to draw on some shrinky dink plastic... I used prisma color pencils, and a (get this) Bic brand Mark-it pen... I know that everyone loves sharpies(as do I) but I have found that the black Bic Mark-it pens work wonders on top of the prisma colored pencils... I like them better for shrinky dink work...
This is my first time ever using Shrinky Dink Brand... usually I buy the off brand that they sell at Ben Franklin's..
things that I love about Shrinky Brand:
-Already roughed and ready! no sanding!
-holds color great!
-nice and thick
things that I don't like about Shrinky Brand:
-seems to be more fragile than off brand...
-tears easily when trying to cut and turn sissors..
-couldn't cut through it with my x-acto knife easily... curvey shapes were a challenge.
And without further ado(sp?) here are my new shrinky drawings.
NOTE: these have not yet been shrunk, I'm pretty excited to see just how intense the colors come out AFTER I shrink them!
-I'll try to remember to add pics later of the finished products..
