LOL! I haven't worked with shirinky dinks yet. I've only worked with beads, polymer clay and wire as far beads and trinkets are concerned.  I just learned how to knit so I share that obsession.

You did a really great job.  I love them.

I am trying to use the Grafix Inkjet Printable shrink sheets I just got, but when I am trying to print them, the ink is pooling and/or running together in dark areas.  I have tried both sides of the sheet as well as sanding the sheet first.  Any ideas?

check your printer settings to make sure it's on "transparency paper". lick your finger and touch both sides of the sheet. the sticky side is the print side.

Ok - so it turns out the first sheet in the pack I opened was just regular shrinky paper, not the inkjet kind!  The other ones printed just fine...  Cheesy

Thought I'd share how the dinks I made for a swap turned out with the sealant.

I love this sealant.  It makes them SOOOO SHINY and its a pretty thick glaze to boot.  I used "KRYLON Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze", it's a mouthful, but that's exactly what it's called Wink  Folow the directions and you'll be fine.  No smearing and no dripping.  This stuff is GREAT!!

Got it at Wal-mart, but I'm sure you can get it anywhere they sell spray-paints.  It looks like this:
