Wrap Around Fox Rings

Talk about trial and error (x3).  I wanted to try making wrap rings out of shrink plastic.  Not knowing exactly where to start, I used my fox template to make the first ring.  The legs made the ring kind of awkward.

For round 2, a fox without legs was used.  The ring looked and felt much better on, but because the ring has to be formed while still hot some ink rubbed off in the process.

Finally, I decided to test frosted plastic.  Now, the rings are just right!  What makes this the best?  This plastic doesn't have as smooth of a texture so the ink gets down into the material.  I absolutely love wearing mine.  You can get your own in my shop.
