Shrinkles SCHOOL PACK - Frosted - Shrink Art by Wizard Ltd
Great product and really fun to use, but it can take a bit of practice and trial and error. Although you can draw on this without permanent marker, if you use felt pens or non permanent pens they can rub off so it's not great for jewellery (although paints and crayons seem to be ok). Similarly if you try to make anything too big the sheets can flip over in the oven and stick to themselves. There are ways to work around this, but if you're planning anything ambitious maybe buy a few packs and set aside a few hours as I have had to throw a lot away after my 'brilliant idea' was a bit too complicated.

Despite this it is a great material and when it works the results look amazing.

I held off buying a Kindle for years, thinking I could just use the Kindle app on my phone. Now I don't know how I managed without it, it is so easy to use! Great for commutes or when you have a few minutes standing at bus stops/queues etc. What was previously lost time staring at a wall, I can now pop this out for a couple of minutes and read a book. Battery lasts for ever, can search for and download books on the kindle, buttons on the side mean you can read even on really crowded tubes when you don't have 2 hands free. Wish I'd bought it years ago I've managed to read so many books in the last few months. Highly recommended.
Digital Textile Design (Portfolio Skills) by Melanie Bowles

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful, 30 Oct 2012
I study printed textile design and this book is great for teaching shortcuts and providing inspiration for new ways to do things. I already use Photoshop a lot, but often find I just use the same techniques to create designs. This book is great as it not only has lots of examples of digital textiles to inspire you, but also shows you in very detailed steps how to use different techniques. It also has some sections on fashion illustration, so I think it would be useful for illustrators, fashion designers, or anyone else who wants to get a bit better at using photoshop, or start learning how to use it. Highly recommended.
