Shrinky Dinks

For those of you who didn't grow up in the 70's, Shrinky Dinks are clear
plastic film that you draw on with markers, cut out, and then heat in an oven
to shrink it to half its size. Lots of fun and they come out similar to
stained glass window ornaments. They can be used in jewelry making also. For a
while (just recently) they were only being sold at toy stores with pre-drawn
cartoon characters on them, which of course greatly reduces anyone's
creativity. But they are also available in unprinted clear plastic through
several art supply catalogs under the name Shrink-It plastic and others. Look
at the 1998 catalogs of Nasco (p. 395) and Dick Blick (p. 348). Happy
