1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: SHRINKY DINKS on: July 10, 2006 08:22:35 PM
hey...to get a metallic finish maybe try using a pearl or irridescent spray after shrinking and then going over again with a permanant pen before glazing......

does the brand you are using have a smooth and rough side? with shrinky dinks the plastic on the opposite side of where you have colored acts as a seal while it's melting. it holds the color in place better so it doen't smear around... i'm assuming that what it does. the instructions don't SAY that but it seems to be true...

awwwwww. don' be like that. try this next time... just cut out and shrink a basic shape... black, white, or frosted. get some colored pencils and just scribble all kinds of colors onto a small area of a frosted sheet. now use scissors or a hole punch to make lots of little bits. shrink all the parts. now on a glass baking dish arrange all the little bits colored side down on the larger piece. (make sure that if you are using a colored large piece to place it with the colored side down). maybe try a stripe or circle. and now CAREFULLY (if the bits shift your design will be messed up) place it in the oven for 20-25 min at 450....you may want to open a door or window.(i don't know if a toaster oven could make the plastic hot enough to melt) drill the hole after cos it'll be a nicer, rounder hole, not as blobby. also if you want it to be thicker just layer another piece of the same or larger size under it. maybe in a different color. good luck!

have any of you ATL thrift hounds noticed that the last chance at church and scott blvd in decatur ( the one with 1/2 off mondays ) seems to be way pricier and extremely depleted? i even went at 8:30 and it totally sucked! what's up with them? it used to be great.

hee hee. i have the exact same problem... i've tried ten million times to thread the bobbin... others have too. i've only used it like 5 times it's brand new...something else strange to add...i live in east atlanta too...the ladies at hancock are always rude and i don't know where else to go!
