    I like the way colored pencils look on shrinky dink plastic....kind of gives it a watercolor effect. I haven't tried markers yet. I guess it would depend on the kind of effect you want and how soft or hard you want the lines and coloring.

    colored pencils

    i''ve been getting super frustrated with shrinky dinks lately. i LOVE the way colored pencils look, but i find that the dust floats onto the pieces while they are curled up in the oven, and the surfaces get little bits of pencil in them. does anyone else have that problem?

    also, what do you seal the back with? The colored pencil gets EVERYWHERE without a sealer. I''ve been using clear nail polish, but does anyone have any other suggestions?

    No strong odors
    Beautiful vibrant colours after baking

    I also bought the coloured pencils from this site and they are really great too!

    Shrinky dinks

    Buying sheetsof shrinky dinks is fun - you can trace from colouring books or use images you find online. If you are having difficulty find shrink dinks you can make your own. Here''s a link that my hubby sent me

    Chanel in shrinky dink

    I recently made a really fun chanel logo shrinky dink necklace. I made two sizes of the chanel logo and one more shrinky dink of a chandelier which turned out really good. I strung them together with some fake pearls and I get so many compliments on it. Its my new favorite necklace. It was so easy too.

    Staz On Ink

    Try using Staz On Ink to stamp images onto your shrinkies! The image will stay crisp and clear when it''s shrunk - color before or after!

    heat guy for shrinky dink

    At one point I had one of those "100s of Crafts"-type books, and it provided several cool shrinky dink ideas. To wit:

    * Use a heat gut (like for melting embossing powders) to melt your pieces. I put ''em in a wooden box lid and sometimes hold the pieces down with a pin tool. They get crazy curly while shrinking, but straighten out (usually completely; sometime I slap a flat, smooth surface on ''em) once fully shrunky dunk.

    * Using the above method of shrinking, you can do a lot of cool stuff while the plastic is still melty. Smoosh a stamp (inked or no) into it. Pierce with pin tool; string as a bracelet or necklace.

    * With scraps of SD plastic leftover from your nifty other cutouts, melt ''em all up and smoosh ''em together to make a cool freeform 3-D piece. Slap a magnet on the back. Turn it into a button...somehow.

    I always wondered how everyone cut their shrink plastic. Do you use scissors? A scalpel? I find that shrinking my pieces only intensifies the mistakes i make when cutting...
