This pretty shrink plastic brooch has been made from one of my watercolour and ink illustrations and is perfect as a gift to treat yourself or a loved one.
It is made using shrink plastic which is printed with the illustration and then heated until it shrinks to a percentage of its original size! It's pretty cool to watch and the finished brooch feels like hard plastic. The size of this brooch is approx. 2.25" x 1.4" (or approx. 6cm x 3.5cm), although because these are handmade the size may vary slightly.
I've coated each brooch with a couple layers of satin varnish which makes the surface feel smoother and gives it a little bit of protection, but please note that the varnish does not make the brooch waterproof, so please protect it from getting wet.
Your purchased brooch will be shipped in a clear plastic pouch and a padded envelope.
PLEASE NOTE: the padded envelopes may not be brand new but ones I'm repurposing. This helps save on packaging costs etc. but rest assured that I won't reuse envelopes that are dirty, excessively torn or have been used to ship anything with a strong smell.
***The images are as close a representation as possible, but please note that these brooches are handmade and slight colour and size variations will be inevitable.****
