We?re so excited about our new shrink plastic jewelry book, Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk!, that we?ve decided to release it early as an Ebook for the NOOK. Get it here. It?s got loads of how-to information to get you comfortable working with shrink plastic, followed by step-by-step instructions for more than 30 projects made by some of the top Etsy jewelry designers.
This digital edition provides a link with all the templates and graphics needed, and you can print right onto your shrink plastic if you use the inkjet kind! Making this jewelry feels like playing: There?s something magical about taking a very thin, flexible sheet of plastic, cutting and decorating it, popping it in the oven, and then watching it transform into something about a third of its original size and nine times as thick.
Shrink plastic is sold by the sheet in packages, and you can find it easily in most craft chains, in many art supply stores, and online, including at shrinkydinks.com.
