So does anyone know if an acrylic spray sealant would work to keep the color from peeling off? I'm afraid that the tape would peel & it wouldn't last long.

I'm not sure about acrylic sealer. But the tape I have isn't peeling out, yet.

this is my new favorite thing to do!

i was thinking about sharpie rubbing off the slick surface, and the scotch tape sealing and all that.  i wonder if buffing/sanding the surface before drawing would help.  hmm.. i'll have to try that...

anyone?   Huh

yep. I rubbed a piece of steel wool over one side of the plastic. that's the side that I used my sharpies/colored pencils to color on.

I'm not quite sure what everyone means by the scotch tape...I didnt put anything on the backs [the steel wooled side] or the front of mine. they came out of the oven perfectly fine. didnt smear at all. I took them out of the oven & went straight to making jewelry & other lovely things  Grin

Consider this:
The health effects caused by consuming Polystyrene (PS) when it migrates from food containers (primarily due to a leaching caused by heat exchange) into food is under serious investigation. Although the EPA has not yet come to a definitive conclusion on the direct carcinogenic effects of PS, the evidence is mounting. Benzene (a material used in the production of PS) is a known human carcinogen. Moreover, Butadiene and Styrene (basic building blocks of PS), when combined, they become benzene-like in both form and function. For this reason PS is highly suspected to be carcinogenic in the same manner as benzene, although the jury is still out due to a lack of controlled studies.

Polystyrene is classified according to DIN4102 as a "B3" product, meaning highly flammable or "easily ignited". Consequently, though it is an efficient insulator at low temperatures.


FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.


The substance decomposes on heating above 300C producing toxic fumes including styrene. The substance decomposes on burning producing irritating fumes. Reacts with strong oxidants.

Melting point: 240C
Flash point: 345-360C
Auto-ignition temperature: 427C

trying not to ask too stupid of a question here: does the above post mean that when I put plastic 6 into my oven for 2 minutes @ 350 degress F that it'll give off possibly toxic chemicals? or is it just that if I put the plastic 6 in the oven at the same time that I am baking apple pie that it will transmit those chemicals into my food?
