D&D has a similar requirement for keeping dice on the table, namely Bardic Inspiration. In my game, I have got around this by buying cheap plastic counters and poker chips from Two-Dollar Stores and writing on them with a permanent marker. I'm using a silver coloured marker.

Cool idea! I've certainly made Shrinky Dinks before (though not for some time). They will become hard, not bendable, and roughly the thickness of two stacked U.S. pennies. Note that they don't always lay flat after shrinking (sometimes they curl a bit). That's the only potential downside I can see to using them for minis. They will also shrink to about 5/8 ...
