    Great, fun book with a wealth of lovely project ideas! When I received this book I actually had to chuckle to myself. I missed the shrinky dink craze of the 70′s and had no experience with shrink plastic of any sort before I made pears on an Artist Trading Card last month. I had become interested in this stuff from that small experience and voila! this book appears for me to enjoy!If you’ve ever had any questions on what this shrink plastic is – this is the book for you! It’s clearly written, beautifully illustrated, clear, concise and, I have to admit ,that I am planning to give several of the suggested projects a whirl because they are ‘that’ nice looking. I guess my comment would be “this is not your grandmother’s – or mother’s – shrink plastic art.Kathy Sheldon gives very well presented information about the relatively short background of this intriguing product and the projects that are presented, designed by some really excellent artists, are things that will both catch your eye as well as your imagination. You’ll find all necessary information about what supplies you will need – none of which are very costly. I bought my dedicated polymer and plastic oven at the thrift store for a song and the plastic sheets are also quite economical. I think most of will have the other required items in our crafty homes already – so you’ll most likely be almost ready to go when the book lands on your doorstep – or in your Indie bookstore’s bag.It’s a really fun book, filled with really nice projects that will be sure to please any crafty gal or guy. With adult supervision and assistance I think that older kids can join in the fun with you too. Buy it! You’ll like it I’m certain!
