In this class, you will learn how to use shrink plastic to create one of a kind charms to give as gifts or to sell at fairs or fundraisers. Shrinky Dink The base material consists of a thin, flexible polystyrene plastic. Prior to heating, the plastic sheets can be colored with felt-tip pens, acrylic paint, colored pencils, etc. and cut into shapes. When heated a heat gun, the plastic shrinks by about five-eighths and becomes thicker and more rigid, while retaining the colored design. Although used primarily for kids, this class will prove that this flexible medium makes fantastic charms for jewelry, gift embellishments, etc. made to look sophisticated and artistic! This class is for adults who will learn how to stretch this very simple medium to spark endless creative possibility!! Guaranteed to love this workshop!
