tattoo necklace with shrinking plastic

Sorry for my english, I'm a frenchy and it's my first how-to :)



Instructions

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Faux Tattoo Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Print the attached design (drawn by me), or draw yours.
    Print it, or copy it on a A4 sized paper sheet (the design will get 7x smaller !).

    Find inspiration on google image etc ... Or your secret daring tattoo project :>

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Faux Tattoo Necklace - Step 2
    Step 2

    Place your shrinking plastic over your design.
    Colour FIRST your design with coloured pencils, the lightest colour first and AFTER draw the lines with black pens, and black shaddows at the very end (unless you will make it dirt, while rub your hand on the design !).

    Tip : Don't color the whole desing, just do the shaddows with colour, leave the edges blanks ;)

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Faux Tattoo Necklace - Step 3
    Step 3

    Cut your design, but beware, not too thin (don't cut all around the little ribbons, leave some plastic spaces for solidity) unless your design will break easily :/ (my first attempt was)

    Don't forget to punch holes NOW were you want to put the chain !

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Faux Tattoo Necklace - Step 4
    Step 4

    Put your design in the oven, and watch the magic !
    (read the instructions on the shrinking plastic blister.)

    (actually, on this photo, you can see my ugly first attempt : dirty and broken ribbon XD eww ..)

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Faux Tattoo Necklace - Step 5
    Step 5

    Varnish it, coloured pencils don't like water !
    I used mate varnish in spray bottle.

    Put rings on the holes, the chains and clasp.

    Et voilà ! You are tattooed ! :)

I just tried this, and ended up with a roll of plastic!

Maybe I'll keep an eye on it next time... Happy

Looks great if you ignore the shape of it, though. Happy

AgitProp > I think yes, but shrink plastic allow you to make fine design and is easy to cut/hole. (i don't know how to properly cut hard plastic, or make hole in it, i don't have any tool for that, so my scissors and hole punch are the best tools i have Happy )

Thanks for the link Leonie ! I didn't know any shop in your country (i'm from France).
