I found a material that has me inspired to draw more, to create characters and new worlds. It’s called “shrinking plastic ” or “plastique dingue” in French. I’ve used it to make pendants for necklaces and charms for bracelets and I’m officially hooked. However, now I understand why these little DIY items can be so pricey…they take a lot of work. The ones that I’ve made are all hand drawn, colored and cut. Then I add a piece of string and make it wearable. If I don’t answer my phone in the coming weeks it’s because I’m shrinking plastic :)
Have a great day!
Why not make some custom crayons to use at home, for a friend or to add as party favors in your birthday gift bags?
What you need:
1. Old, broken crayons
2. Silicone muffin molds (any shape will work fine)
3. A baking tray to set the muffins on
4. A preheated oven set to about 170 degrees Celsius
1. Peel the paper off of your crayons.
2. Place the broken crayon pieces into the silicone muffin molds.
3. Place the muffin molds on the baking tray and place the tray into your preheated oven. Allow them to “bake” for about 15 minutes.
4. Take the molds out of the oven and allow them to cool for about an hour.
5. Pop the crayons out of the molds and put them to paper!
