I was in the mood to doodle something silly the other day, so I made these three Shrinky Dinks. Above is the “after” version, next to a quarter so you get a feel for how big they turned out. Below is the “before” version, with the very same quarter for comparison.
If you’re coveting these, the tentacle’s been claimed but you can still get John & Sherlock as donation gifts in my HALP PLS computer replacement donation drive. Because while I mostly use natural media (physical not digital things) to make art, I still need a working computer to bring the art to you.

Yes, that is a dime off in the distance there. Yes, they are just that wee. Somehow, I forget every time just how small they’re going to get! I have no idea what I’ll do with these, possibly a random giveaway. I have jump rings for them (which are ginormous compared to the actual charms) but it’s much easier to photograph them flat without.
Here you can see them before shrinking, next to a pair of scissors for relative scale. Their colors are also less intense, since they get much more pigment-dense when the material they’re on shrinks.
And then a clearer shot of the after, with the same pair of scissors and the additional dime for reference. SO WEE.

Do you remember Shrink Dinks? I had forgotten all about them until I ran across the Klutz Press book on them, which of course I bought, and then proceeded to store away for years with my art supplies. Well, today is the day they finally got put to use.
I used about 1/3 of a sheet for these guys, and wow, they got soooo wee. Seriously, I was somehow not expecting them to shrink quite so much, but I have future wicked plans for making more. Here you can see them with a dime for size comparison — on my screen, they’re actually larger than they are in real life.
Dark-colored Sharpies are still quite dark on the semi-transparent plastic, though you can see the colors clearly above with the lights shining through. I’m definitely going to have to experiment with some more of these, and then figure out how to price them and what for. Perhaps a set of ninja stitch markers? Zombie zipper pulls? Cthulhu on a cord for a necklace?
