For my three girl-friends here in Wales – I decided that although they had their own doll – they could also have smaller versions of their two friends to hang on the Christmas Tree!
(Although one of my friends has such a tasteful Christmas tree – her decorations did not make it onto the tree!)
So I photographed the finished doll. and printed it onto “shrink paper” for an ink jet printer.
After a few trial and errors – I printed the image nearly the full size of an A4 paper, and as you can see from above – I really lightened the colour – because during the heating process the colours darken.
Size approx 3 ins high
The images shrink a lot during the two minutes that you heat them in the oven. I also discovered that they don’t shrink evenly – so if I printed figures sideways (landscape) on an A4 sheet – they turned out small – but slim!
However portrait I could do bigger figures – but they were slightly “well rounded”
Anyway – it was fun and I have wanted to try shrink plastic/paper for the inkjet printer for ages.
