The brand new shrink plastic jewelry book Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! has 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 many top Etsy jewelry designers.
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.
