I used clear nail polish to seal mine..

Well, I use permanent color pen to draw on the plastic, when I use nail polish, the color smear off.

So may be u are using pencil crayon?

The krylon fixative...do you spray it before or after you bake the shrinky dinks?

after. i think if you did it before and then applied heat it would create toxic fumes that would not be happy to breathe. so after you shrink, spray.

I prefer the transparent one too. If you want the transparent to be more white, just use sand paper to scrub it.

I did some shrinky dinks this weekend. I have an Epson printer, which is supposed to be not great for the ink jet ones, so I sprayed them twice with the Krylon acrylic matte spray after they cooled down. I held down the sprayer for about the count of 10, moving the can back and forth over the parchment paper. I let it set for a while -- long enough to eat breakfast -- then sprayed them again. They work great! Before spraying, the ink was coming off when I touched it. Now -- well, they're sealed well enough to be keychains!

I want to try stamping on the shrink plastic, but after I bake it, the color smear off.

Q:What kind of INK PAD should I use ? Or it's there such ink pad?

I know permenant pen (or oilbase color) works on shrink plastic.
But I don't want to color my friend's stamps with permenant pen.

Q: I know nail polish will smear color off, so what kind of 'surface protector' should I use?

if youre looking to stamp on shrink plastic you have to use a permanent ink (pigment ink)  i personally use a brand called "Fabrico" its also permanent on fabric when heat set. i also use stamp'n'up  brand pigment ink pads. they work the same. there are a ton of brands out there, just look for the ones that say they are permanent or heat settable.
as for a clear protective coat try a fixative. (i use krylon brand) its in a spray can like spray paint but it is a clear coating that comes in different finishes (matte, gloss etc.)

Hope that helps!

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.
