Shrinky Dink SoapOctober 10, 2010 6:01 am Crafts, Home Decor, Kid's Crafts, Techniques and Mediums
Here’s what you need:
1. If your Shrinky dinks aren’t already colored and shrunk, let your kids have at it with them and enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet. (Don’t forget to turn your oven light on so they can watch them curl up and turn tiny!)
2. In your double boiler, melt the soap base. You can add colorant at this point or just leave the soap clear.
3. Fill your soap mold 3/4 of the way full and drop a shrinky dink, shiny side down, onto the surface. Allow the soap to set up for a few minutes before filling the mold the rest of the way. This will suspend the image in the soap.
4. Once the soap is completly hardened, ease out of the mold and package up in small gift bags for instant presents (hint – these are great for school friends and grandparents!)
