Loving shrink plastic


P6220068, originally uploaded by edwardandlilly.

I discovered shrink plastic a while ago. It's really hard to find in Brisbane and I ended up findng an online quilting shop in Caboolture that stocks it. I used permanent ink markers so the drawings didn't rub off and made a series of brooches, you can check out more of them on my flickr page. The ink still rubs off a bit so I think I'll have to varnish them somehow.

The standard material for soft plastic bottles is low-density polyethylene (LDPE). It is resistant to most household chemicals, acids, bases, and temperatures.
