I just wanted to share some of my further explorations of the shrink plastic technique. I’ve made some pretty cool bookmarks traced from the covers of some of my favorite books.
Once again, if you don’t remember from my last post, you’ll need these things.
Take however much time you want to trace over the cover in sharpie on your #. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a marker that works nearly as well.
It’ll curl up pretty severely in the oven, but if you keep an eye on it and don’t let it adhere to itself as it curls it will eventually lay out flat. If the side you colored on touches the aluminum foil, the marker will come off or smudge. You can see evidence of this on both of my bookmarks, sadly.
Super cool though, am I right?
