Wow - your stuff is really gorgeous.
It looks very professionally done.
I'm somewhat confused though - I recently tried shrinkydinks and it said in the packaging not to use water-based anything - water colour pencils or paints, even crayola markers? Also it said to be sure to use an alcohol base pen. Micron's are archival ink, aren't they?
Not trying to argue your technique, just wondering if you did run into any troubles with the colour staying. I'd like to get good at these things Smiley
I'm not the original poster but I thought I"d offer some answers in case it helps.
I finally got some And I love markers on them. The colors do become more vibrant when they shrink but I haven't had issues with the markers rubbing off.
I have had issues with my colored pencils scratching or rubbing off though. I had a small dog charm I made that became white eyes instead of having pupils!
I do find that I have better control with the colored pencils though so there are pro's and con's to each. I'd do an experiment and see which you like better!
