    THE GAMES:
    How-to: Robbie and Halo of the Sun earrings
    Report filed by Mar 10th, 2013

    Make your own shrink plastic Silent Hill earrings.

    You need:

    • Inkjet shrink film
    • Rustoleum spray lacquer
    • Scissors
    • Hole punch
    • Small sheet of cardboard
    • Access to an oven or toaster oven
    • Oven mitt to remove them from the oven
    • Findings such as earring backs, pin backs, earring hooks, jump rings, etc. and needle nose pliers to open jump rings.

    (If you don’t want to make your own, I made two pairs and they are on etsy.)

    1. Buy some inkjet shrinkfilm. It’s hideously overpriced compared to the regular non-injet kind, but the other kinds don’t work if you’re printing an image. I know because I’ve tried. Search for “shrink film” on amazon and find a listing for the printable kind.
    2. After searching for images online (you can find Silent hill images and textures in the gallery), arrange them in an image or word file (I made a word doc) and print them out. Make sure that they are about twice as large as you want them to be. Cut them apart with scissors after letting the ink dry a bit.
    3. If you want to make dangly earrings, charms, or pendants, you will need to make a hole before baking. Use a hole punch.

    5. Put them in the oven or toaster oven and bake according to the directions on the package.

    Preheating helps, and it only takes a few minutes.

    6. If it’s a toaster oven with a clear front, you can watch as they do wacky things while shrinking. Wait for them to shrink completely and flatten out again before removing from oven. (If they don’t completely flatten, flatten them more with another sheet of cardboard on top. Press down on the top sheet.)

    7. Spray the printed side with something like Rustoleum lacquer spray. Krylon clear coat did NOT work well for me, it caused the colors to fade and run. Don’t put the spray can too close, a couple of light coats is best.

    Then you can attach the findings: jump rings, pins, earring backs, etc.
