Keep reading for tips and tricks to use these spa items to decorate 3 beautiful Shrinky Dinks jewelry pieces!
This technique of decorating Shrinky Dinks with nail polish works great with Crystal Clear Plastic Sheets. First draw or trace your design with black permanent marker. Trim around the shape and punch any holes needed to turn this design into a charm later. Shrink in the oven according to the package direction.
Once cooled, turn the shrunken Shrinky Dinks piece over and use the fine point tips of Sketch It nail pens to add color to the back of the design. Coloring on the backside keeps your outlines sharp and not smudged since they’re on the front!
Once dry, flip the piece back over and apply a light coat of glitter nail polish over the top. Now your piece will sparkle with glitter on the front yet colorful from the nail polish application applied on the back.
Add jump rings or string onto a chain to wear your beautiful Shrinky Dinks creation!
