More Shrink Shenanigans

I had a few more shrink cut outs from the last time I played around with shrink plastic and thought today is the day to finish them. The reason I had left them was that I wanted to try water-colouring the back of them (it was one of the suggestion on the direction sheet of the packet). The finished effect wasn’t what I had expected (a little mottled, as if the watercolour was resistant to the rough side of the plastic) but I think it’s kind of cool now (if not a little like a five year old did it). I especially like the effect on the hearts I made with the left over odds and ends of plastic. The watercolour on the back went a little chalky when shrunk so I coated them in a layer of PVA to seal them. I made the bison into a pin for my rucksack. The rest I still have to put the rest use.

Meanwhile, I also made one of my previous pendants into a necklace. I love my tooth necklace! I sort of want to make a little fairy to hang next to it. Unfortunately there is a little colour contamination in at, as during the shrinking I touched my red bow then it. Shucks. It’s not too noticeable though. In the end, it means I’m truly in love with shrink plastic!
