My daughter has spent all day drawing dragons. She’s gotten better and she’s really working hard at each of the different types.
She drew this “Silkwing” Dragon that she was super proud of and while she was upstairs reading (about dragons) I had a random idea!
Many months ago we had bought printable Shrinky Dink paper and never used it. Today was the day!
I took a picture of her dragon. Reduced it to fit on a 4x6. The directions say to reduce the opacity by 15-30%. I did 30% but I think I should have leaned toward 15%. (It wants you to print lighter because it will condense and shrink your artwork and if you print it at full brightness it’ll look like a mess.) I cut around it after printing too.
Well, it turned out pretty cute!
She was thrilled when I showed her and she already has plans for more. She wants to make a whole magnet set.
Here’s the size *before * shrinking:
And here’s the original picture:
I know this is barely a project but more of an experiment. Just thought I’d share in case anyone wanted to see how the printable Shrinky Dinks turned out. I had never known it was a thing until I saw it in the craft store.
