Tracing

  1. If you want the design 1 inch long, draw it 3 inches long. Triple the length because it shrinks to a third of the original size after heating. Place the design under the shrink wrap plastic, and trace the design onto the plastic with a permanent marker. Color the design with gel pens or permanent markers.

  2. Cut out the design

  3. Place the cutout design on a flat, heat-proof surface. Hold the design in place using a shish kabob skewer as you heat the design with the heat gun. It curls and bends as it shrinks. If you don't have a heat gun, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Put the design on a cookie sheet and bake until it flattens. Let cool for 10 minutes before moving the design. It hardens as it cools. Attach red teardrop jewel to necklace as seen in the photo above with jewelry glue.

  4. Attach bail to your Vampyre symbol with jewelry glue. Run chain through and add clasps. Your necklace is ready to wear.


With an Inkjet Printer

  1. Open a drawing program on the computer. Programs like Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint or Gimp work well for this. Open a picture of the Vampyre symbol. Open a picture by clicking on "File," "Open," "From File." Click on your image and click "Open." 
  2. Insert a piece of shrink plastic in the ink jet printer with the rough side facing up. The rough side has texture that holds the color.Click on "File," and "Print." When the print folder comes up, click on "Properties." Find the "Fast Speed" or "Draft" printing feature. Click on it,and print. The image on the computer screen prints on the shrink plastic.
