I made a deinonychus keyring for my fiancÃ© because he loves dinosaurs and a deinonychus is his favourite. It looks like a velociraptor.
I'm proud of it, it was my first time using shrink plastic.
First off, I asked my guy what his favourite dinosaur was. He said deinonychus so I googled it and confirmed I had the correct image.
I selected one I like and printed it off.
I traced the image onto clear shrink plastic then turned it over and coloured it in.
Then I punched a hole above its head and cut it out. Cutting it out was a bit tricky.
I turned the oven on to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F) and watched it (as per the instructions).
"The plastic will curl and twist. WAIT UNTIL IT LIES FLAT. It will then be pliable and fully shrunk."
I watched it do this, it was awesome!
The instructions said to flattened it but it was already flat.
I added a jump ring and attached it to a keyring. Now I just have to give it to him. I hope he likes it.
