Fast, fresh and fun shrink plastic jewellery! Popular with kids for decades, shrink plastic is back and all grown up as an exciting trend in jewellery making. You can now buy many types of shrink plastic in craft stores and online. Best-selling craft author Kathy Sheldon teaches you to draw, colour, stamp and even print designs and photos onto the plastic, cut or punch it into various shapes and then shrink it in an oven, toaster oven, or with a heat gun. Add some basic findings, such as jump rings or ear wires, to make your own stylish jewellery. Sixteen leading jewellery designers and crafters present instructions for more than 30 gorgeous and inspiring projects - from fantastic necklaces and bracelets to stylish brooches and rings - so you can take shrink plastic to a whole new level! With bonus doodles from Aimee Ray and 15 pages filled with graphics to trace or print right onto your shrink plastic!
