Anyway, did you know that they make printable shrinky film now? I had no idea until recently. Imagine the possibilities!
I found a pack of white printable shrink film at Dick Blick. Time to go to town.
Cut the charms out carefully. Since it's plastic, I couldn't cut this in the machine, but instead by hand. It can be a little tricky if you have a lot of small corners!
Anyway, they make some pretty fun charms! You'll want to coat them with something though, so the ink doesn't come off. I used polyurethane at first, but it started to turn the charms yellowish. The newer ones use clear nail polish. We'll see how that works in the long run!

|In his MgRonald's garb, of course.|
But why stop at just charms? Penga-Sis came over so we made earrings too! Dragonballs for me and Rainbow Dash cutie marks for her.
Anyway, I see loads of potential with this fancy printable plastic. Definitely will be prepared with some otaku ear gear at the next con, anyway!
