5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! If you fancy a go at shrink plastic ..., 5 Sep 2014

This review is from: Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! (Paperback)
The book starts with a few pages of basics. The different kinds of shrink plastic available and some tips on using it. Then it moves straight on to the projects.

There are bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings and brooches

There are 31 projects in the book. All the templates are printed full size at the end of the book - bonus points, I much prefer full sized templates to having to enlarge them. All the projects are jewellery items, though papercrafters could find a use for them on their cards and scrapbook layouts.

Some of the projects are more difficult. There are rings which of course are curved, and there are some gorgeous 3d flowers . Beautiful!

If you fancy a go at shrink plastic but don't have many ideas of your own, this book is ideal. It's also great if you can't draw. A lot of the projects are really quite original and the 3d items are just lovely. The instructions are very well written, I had no trouble following them at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars No shrinking of expectations, 17 July 2013

This review is from: Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! (Paperback)
Great book. Explains what shrink plastic is and how to use it and tools you might need. Some really useful tips. Great ideas for jewellery using the many different kinds of shrink plastic and styels, translucent, opaque, bending the plastic, making your own, printable shrink plastic and comes with templates in the back for the projects.

I think it's very good for beginners and people with more experience there are a lot of easy projects but they have also included some much harder projects and techniques.

Some of the projects are a little similar but they give you an idea of what you can do with shrink plastic and hopefully fuel your own imagination.

If you want to learn how to use/make jewellery from shrink plastic then this is ideal.

As a newcomer to the wonderful world of shrink plastic I was very pleased with the projects in this book, and most particularly with the useful tips for novices. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book, 29 July 2013

This review is from: Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! (Paperback)
I couldn't wait to get this book and I wasn't disappointed when it arrived. It covers many different kinds of shrink plastic and shows you how to make a diverse range of jewellery items. The language used is clear and concise, making the instructions very easy to follow and every project is very pretty, but at the same time you could still see the items being used every day. Really nice book and would recommend as a book for those who have yet to explore shrink plastic, or for those who'd like to use their plastic in different ways
