Hello Friends! In honor of TOFF’s 1st Birthday myself and the rest of the DT will be giving away one of our Octopode Factory creations! Lily will also be giving away some images for the bash as well. All you have to do to be entered to win is submit a Birthday themed creation to our Birthday Challenge at TOFF. I have created an Octopode Factory Charm bracelet as my contribution to the Birthday giveaway!
I have used some of the latest and greatest images from the Octopode Factory…the Comics…to create these charming shrink plastic charms.
Meet George the Dunce…isn’t he just darling?
I added a mix of Star charms to the bracelet as well since this comic troop is destined for “Stardom”!
Here you can see the images on shrink plastic before they were baked. I used Gelly Roll Stardust pens to add a hint of color to the images.
Shrink plastic charms are quite easy to make. Simply color your images on Shrink plastic, punch a hole with a standard hole punch, cut , and bake.
To seal my charms I brushed on a light coating of Sculpey Glaze. While the glaze was still wet I sprinkled Ranger Holographic embossing powder over it. I added several coats of Sculpey Glaze to give my charms a glass like sheen.
Once the glaze is dry all you need are some jump rings and chain to affix your shrink plastic charms to. The fasteners I used are magnetic so you won’t have to worry about fussing with a lobster clasp
Stop by TOFF and link up a Birthday themed project for your chance to win this Octopode Factory Charm Bracelet!
Have a Charming day!
