WHY ISN’T THE WORK PERFECTLY SQUARE?

ALL OF MY PIECES ARE DRAWN IN COLORED PENCIL ON POLYSTYRENE PLASTIC. THE PLASTIC BEGINS AS AN 8 X 10 in. SHEET. AFTER A QUICK BAKE IN THE OVEN, IT SHRINKS DOWN TO 3.25 X 4 in. DURING THIS PROCESS, THE PLASTIC BECOMES THICKER, THE COLORS BECOME MORE VIVID, AND THE TEXTURE BECOMES VELVETY. NO TWO PIECES ARE EXACTLY ALIKE.
