The Shrinky Dink Experience [Jan. 4th, 2008|04:06 pm]
I might be cheating a little bit here, as this was more of a "play with a new product" rather than an actual "craft project" - But it has produced something new for me so I wanted to share.

(That, and I was getting itch fingers wanting to post something)

(Clicking on the thumbs will take you to my site gallery)

Basically I was trying to work out how feasible using shrinky dink plastic would be to make tags and charms for the other stuff I make.

I learnt a lot, mainly that I'll never be a great artist and that my handwriting is VERY messy (esp when working on a curve), but it was good to learn a new product and see what its limitations are.

And ... at the end of the day, while they are quite amateurish, I still find them kinda cute.
