Superman shrinky dink from plastic #6 cup (What not to do!)
This is a failed project, I drew a Superman symbol on the side of a plastic #6 cup, but when I shrunk it in the oven, the image became distorted. It is best to draw on the bottom of the cup, because the plastic was blow molded into the cup shape and when you heat it, the plastic will revert to it's original state (non flat surface.) I recommend using the cup as shrinky dink only if you will be okay with a wavy pattern.
