Has anyone used the black shrinky dink plastic?  I have some, but have never used it.  I bought it several years ago in a trial pack from somewhere online.  I did like the shrinky dink sheets that go in inkjet printers.  I had a Canon (loved it!), but it died. =(  The ink didn't rub off with it.  I don't think it's work in the laser printer thought. I guess I'll have to ask for another inkjet and get some more shrinky dink plastic at the store.  You all have got me back interested in this.

BTW, I have some shrinky dink charms that my daughter made me when her oldest (13) son was a baby.  They still look as good as the day she made them.

I think some shrink plastic sheet aren't meant for printers. You have to buy those 'special' shrink plastic sheet, that said it can go thru the printer.

I know about black shrink plastic sheet. But I am not sure how to work on it. I guess neon and metallic color would be pretty  Cheesy

I tried pigment ink in a workshop, but the ink smear off, or I guess they have a wrong cover on the ink pad (someone mix it up by accident) I dunno.

I am not sure if I want to take risk of spend the money to by the 'suppose to work' ink pad. Coz they are not cheap. Or I will ask the sales in the store before I buy it.

I will have to see how much is the spray before I consider buying it.

well im sorry i didnt work for you i have never had a problem with it. maybey youre stamping on the worng side of the pastic...to behonest i have never had a problem with smearing EVER so im a bit shocked that there are so many of you that are having problems...

ah? there is a wrong side of the plastic? The plastic I brought is transparent, both sides are glossy and smooth.

BAKING TIME?? all different?

I started shrink plastic art, when I saw it in the dollar store. It's not a blank sheet, one side is matt with preprint cartoons on it.
The baking instruction is like this: (summerized and edited)
1.preheat the electric oven to 300F (150C) for 2 mins.
2.Place the color side down on a aluminum cookie sheet.
3.Put into the oven and bake for 1-5 mins. Bake until shrink stops and design lies flat again.
4.Remove cookie sheet from oven and allow to cool.

I then brought a sheet of shrink plastic at Daiso. Well, the instruction is in japanese (I don't comprehend). So I am still testing the baking time, with reference of the instruction from the dollar store plastic.

The questions is: do you find plastic sheets from different brand are different in baking time?
Can you tell me about the those time? I want to test them.

well, for starters thats your problem. you need to slightly sand one side to rough it up a bit. then put ink on the rough side.... all shrinkies do (or should) come with instructions SOMEWHERE......that explains how long and the temp....usually (with the ones i have) you bake for 5-6 mins....

I tried using my friend hot gun (I don't have one). The plastic blow away. haha

So, do you scrub before you stamp on the plastic??

slb2724,
I see masterpiece that did not scrub, but the stamp stays on.

you have to hold the plastic down with something (i use tweezers) so it doesnt blow away.

(I am not talking about shrink plastic for fruit basket)

I know there is shrink plastic sheets for putting in the 'home-use' printer. Anyone use this kind of sheets before?

Q1:
Do they have transparent and non-frost plastic sheets?
And the ink from printer is not oil base (I dont think so), so will the color come off from the sheets?

In case, the store I have physical access to, don't have krylon fixative, any other 'sealing' 'protective' product I can use?
(nail polish only works for pencil crayon)

And I guess spray sealer is less chance to smear of the color when I applying onto the plastic?

Q2:
Well, I checked out those Staz-On ink pad, it's a bit expensive for me. And also, I like to have different colors too.
If I use water-base ink pad on the plastic, bake it then put spray sealer on the plastic, will it work?

   Cheesy  Thank you  Cheesy

using a water based ink will not work, even if you use a sealer.
