DIY SHRINK PLASTIC GEM NECKLACE
I’ve always loved using shrink plastic, it always feels like magic when you watch it shrink. It’s a great tool for making unique jewellery that is perfect for any occasion!
YOU WILL NEED:
Black Fine-Liner Pen
Heat tool (or Grill)
Sand your Plastic sheet with a fine sandpaper. Then trace or draw a free hand design using a fine liner pen.
Colour in your design with colouring pencils, don’t worry if the colour comes out very light it will intensify as it shrinks so don’t over compensate as your pieces will come out too dark.
Cut around your design, leaving a few millimetres around the edge.
Hole punch where you would like the holes to be.
Use your heat tool to heat your shrink plastic shapes, They will curl up and then unfurl.
Lay out your necklace and jump rings. Use your pliers to put the necklace and jump rings together.
Ta da! One unique, but super cute necklace ready to go!
