Turian Shrinky-Dink Keychains by MoonEcho Turian Shrinky-Dink Keychains by MoonEcho
Hah, so this is a thing I said I'd do, so I figured I should show how they turned out. I saw this tutorial on tumblr on how to make Shrinky-Dink keychains, and I thought it looked pretty fun! I'd never tried Shrinky-Dinkery before. So, I attempted to make some keychains out of the little turian heads I drew for the ongoing Gaggle of Turians contest header.

I made a bunch, and managed to ruin most of them. Pictured above are the survivors! Not pictured are a few micro-Chellicks I made because....???

Anyway, they turned out OK, but I think I'd need to experiment more to really get a quality thing out of them. For one thing, I think the sealer I used was way too shiny. TOO SHINY. THE SHINY, IT BURRRRNS.

But yeah. It was fun!'d recommend trying it, if you enjoy fun things.

ahhh this is so cool : D!
I myself got some mordin ones on deviantanrt... but they don't look as neat and good looking. My mum who did them also managed to murder most of them in the making process, so  I understand your "I made a bunch, and managed to ruin most of them. Pictured above are the survivors!" x'D

Nuuuu don't have a heart attack XD

The ones above are still pretty experimental, but I'm working on developing better ones. Once I have them figured out, I'm planning on releasing printable artwork for free, so people can make their own if they want. I'm thinking also I'll offer pre-printed sheets (for people who want to make these themselves but don't have an inkjet printer), and I should also have a small stack of finished ones once the experimenting is over.

Nuuuuuuuu don't explode!

I'm working on improving and refining the process to make better ones. When I get them right, I'll post printable sheets so people can make their own, and I'll likely also have a small stack of ones that succeeded the testing. :meow:

Working on fixing and refining the manufacturing process. By the end, I will hopefully have a small stack of Garruseseseses for to give away. Also, I'll post printable sheets of Garrus if you'd rather make your own. :iconimhappyjrplz:
