They usually do curl.  It sounds like you are taking them out too early.  They will curl and then flatten themselves and you should leave them in the oven a few seconds after they have gone back to flat.

thanks.

You can print the ink jet shrinkys in your printer, the only worry would be if you tried to use a laser printer since lasers use heat to press the ink onto the page and obviously you don't want to do that. I have printed on them with no problems at all.
And yes, it takes quite a while to dry...

But the regular shrinky dinks you can print in a zerox machine.
 ( but not with an ink jet printer since they use a special coating to get the ink to adhere)

You used to be able to get Shrinky Dinks at Michael's, but I don't know if they still have them.  You could also try Hobby Lobby.  Or Ebay, since you can get just about anything off of Ebay.

I used the printer shrinky dink paper, and when I baked them, they came out black.  The colours were originally green and purple.  What did I do wrong??  I want to do it again, but I don't want to waste more paper and ink.

You need to lighten the picture a LOT before you print.  It should look all washed out.  The colours darken as it shrinks.

Does anyone have any good tips for getting a metallic like finish to your polyshrink?

I tried a silver paint pen after shrinking but you can really see each stroke of the pen. Any ideas of what to use to get a smooth surface?

hey...to get a metallic finish maybe try using a pearl or irridescent spray after shrinking and then going over again with a permanant pen before glazing......

Do you guys apply a layer of varnish to your final project?
Cos i did and the ink smudged.
Any tips to share for varnishing?

And about printing onto shrinky dinks, did the normal shrinky dinks get stuck inside printer (sorry for such a dumb question  Undecided )??
