This morning I've been playing with shrinking plastic. A couple of months ago I bought myself a wonderful plastic brooch made in this way and so I thought I'd give it a go myself. I've used this product before but it was a disaster!!
So the first attempt was this little chap who was created to see the rate of shrinkage...he's tiny!
So then I tried making two images the same size to be used as earrings.
This is the size they were when they went into the oven.
This is the scary moment when they curl up and you can't help but think it's all going wrong.
But then they flatten themselves out...brilliant!
And here they are, not too bad on the size side of things and not bad for a playing session. I'll be doing more of this I think.
This is a definitely a fun thing to do with the little people too.
