Shrink Plastic Tip

Editor's Note: A special thank you to the Craft Cabin for writing not only a tip, but this wonderful article on using Shrink Plastic!

Using Shrink Plastic

Types of shrink plastic:

There are various products from different companies including unsanded, sanded, in black, white, frosted and clear & now even pre-printed & wallpaper. The plastic shrinks to approx 45% of the original size.

Black - shrinks the fastest and the 'gooiest'; white - good for clear, sharp colours and using with pencils; frosted - one side ready roughened with a clear back for 'window' designs, and totally clear for a variety of effects.

If not bought ready sanded you will need to sand the plastic first using 320 - 400 grade wet and dry paper for best results and sanding both ways and both sides if you wish to colour the back as well. Sanding the back also helps to avoid sticking when heating. Do not sand clear plastic or it will have a frosted instead of clear appearance.

Colouring:

The most important thing to remember is that the colour intensifies after shrinking so 'less is more', go easy or your results will be very dark. A few trial runs and a little practice you will find the right balance.

Think shrink, think non-porous?

Card Making Tip
Look at each punch or stamp or other tool you use in a different way. You never know what you can up with that will be out of the ordinary from the reason that tool was originally created. You can mix-and-match pieces of rub-ons to create a new scene, you can mask stamps to use only certain sections, and you can use punches for completely different objects (like using a bird's wing as leaf for a flower or piece of fruit). Nothing has to be used for the exact purpose it was created. I like to integrate these kinds of things in my designs to keep everything fresh and new.
