Welcome to Day 18 of Art Every Day Month!
I realized that I have never played with Shrinky Dinks before! I think everyone needs to have fun with them at least once. I picked up a kit from Joann's Fabrics which included 5 sheets of shrinky dink paper. It also came with a few colored pencils so I used them on a few and artist pitt pens on the others. I stamped a Suzi Blu stamp on one of the sheets but my stamp was bigger than the sheet so I only used part of the words from the stamp. I used StazOn ink with the stamps but, as you can tell, the ink ran in a few places. P.S. Don't you just love the smell of black StazOn ink?
I placed a quarter next to my cutouts so you can compare the amount of shrinkage before and after they were baked.
Holy cow! I had no idea just how much these would reduce in size. They're cute and that was some short-lived fun but at least I can now say that I've had the shrinky dink experience.
I picked up a few more packs of polymer clay to make some gift tags for Christmas. See Day 9 for my first project ever with polymer clay. After they were baked and cooled I antiqued them and left them with a natural look
Short and sweet art day!
