So I was given a pack for my birthday and got experimenting.
So you will need permenant pens, watercolour pencils, a hole punch, scissors, plus magnets, keyrings, earrings etc that you might want to add at the end.
I used white plastic. It also comes in different colours and clear.
Cut the pladtic. **Remember it shrinks, upto 7 times smaller. Do cut your shape and size with this in mind.
Then use the permenant pen to draw onto the scratchy side.
Above was my first experiment.
I then wanted to make some earrings. So I cut the shape out, it looked huge for earrings!
Drew the patterns in. I hole punched to top of each for the earrings to go in. Then put them on foil on a baking sheet. Put that in a preheated oven. Watch it. It will take about a minute. It will curl and bend in the oven. When it stops curlung and shrinking take out immediatly and put something heavy on top.
Thats it done!
Dont they look good? I love the effect they make when its shrunk down.
Hmmm what else can I make? Button earrings?
My daughter was interested in this too. She spent a long time adding all the detail in. We then added a pin on the back to make her own badge - she loves it!
I also tried adding some colour sfter adding the black pen. Which worked really well. The pink chalky pencil didnt work well as it smudged.
There you go - give it a try!
