wow u get them lovely clean , iīm not sure how big they are, i canīt do them this clean looking at about 2cm result. i keep thickening the outer lines a bit and cut them out in all detail, it might be a bit brakable for less bolt designs, would love to see one of yours cut out.  what kind of shrinky foil do you use? they donīt reall yhave the original in my country so i had to look for a reseller of this from here, that didnīt give me much choice of the style to pick. mine is pretty rough structured and matte, but pretty similar looking as this.  the keychains you use are also lovely.  this is the usual i get of it, in darker place it gets quite much bubbles which is disturbing  ronthewolf.deviantart.com/art/…

Hi there! I don't cut mine out along the lines, because it makes them less sturdy. :) I use the clear "frosted" Shrinky Dinks paper, seen here: www.amazon.com/Shrinky-Dinks-S… The earrings you made look really cute!

thank you!
oh well that´s what i was wanting to buy the firs ttime i ordered but none sellers are from europe and looks like the shipping is only inside US for most of them. Strangely the one i got has a cover sheet saying shrinky dinks and it has the  (R) of course... but the rest its written in german it onyl says  "shrinky dinks crystal"  i pay about 1€+ per sheet....

so far none of my shrinkies broke even due heavy use, also if you make the drawing a little rounder with less stretched out legs it will be sturdier , it´s worth a try i´d say but´s your decision.
to prevent the color to scratch off i varnish them which also worked nice so far, only with waterbased of course.

I varnish mine as well - I linked to a tutorial in the description, and I follow that pretty closely when making mine. :)

If you want, you could buy some Shrinky Dink paper through me. You can send me the payment, and I'll go out and buy some for you and send it to you. You can let me know if you're interested. :)

thanks thats a nice offer, i´d  really like to know if mine isn´t the same as this , it´s the one with this strange angel crafting on the cover right? mine looks different from cover but it seems to look the same in structure. sometimes hard to tell.
 i asked a friend in texas today if they have it in local store there, he might have a look tomorrow. buying it online right away from ebay they´d charge me 14€ shipping, while i know that an envelope up to 500gramm will only be around 4€ 
the only german reseller has very neutral covers without examples and says nothing about the sort of shrinky. my old one says "crystal"  and looks liek this from the even side s224.photobucket.com/user/RonT… it doesn´t really look like the name´s equivalent "crystal clear" but then again i can only tell fromt he packet images.

oh correction, in the tutorial you linked it doe slook like mine ._.   still yours seem so different in structure, it almost looks like using crinkle effect varnish or things like that, very beautiful.

I think that crinkle effect has to do with the varnish I used (I'm trying to find a better varnish). Here is a better representation of how they generally look: flannmoriath.deviantart.com/ar…
