    Art or Craft?

    Paint your design. No Tablet needed.
    Print it out on to Heat Shrink Plastic Paper.
    Put it in the oven for a couple of minutes.

    Wow, freaky.
    What do you do with the shrunken result? Put it on a chain as a pendant?
    Nice colourful design.

    I agree with felfish, this is a cool idea. At Bent we are always trying to add to the experience of working with us by making little extras for our clients. I could see using this method to turn their product or character into a key tab or button. I can see our lead producer being enthusiastic about this possibility. I reckon I'll be hitting the store for some shrink sheets.

    Thanks Aged P!

    P.S. It just occured to me that (since my wife and I make some of our own clothes) we could make our own custom buttons. Creative wear by Art Rage!

    Hey Aged P,

    I'm not sure what fusable cotton paper is and how I would use it to make buttons for clothing but I'm all ears. Please 'splain i' ta me.

    Hi there,

    Fusible cotton is real cotton attached to a backing sheet so it can be easily printed. It's not like an iron on tee shirt transfer.

    When the picture, (pictures if you are doing buttons!) is printed, the material is ironed directly on to another cloth. The two materials then fuse together into a washable textile. It's aimed at Tee shirts, bags etc. but the slightly thicker stiffer result should make a good long lasting button.

    When you find a suitable store you may also find Printable Magnetic Paper,
    Yippee! Designer fridge magnets!

    It comes mostly in US paper sizes which confuses my printer a little, but you should be fine.

    Epson do a peel off sticky high quality paper.

    I think it's time to bump this back to the top.
