Re Embossing/heat gun: I use mine for shrinky, rather than the oven. Place the shrinky item onto a baking sheet (or ceramic tile - something like that), hold it down with something, e.g. knitting needle, tweezers, end of scissors, etc. As soon as its finished shrinking I press down on it with a wood block (old mounted rubber stamp, but anything smooth and solid like that will do). Works for me anyway.
Has anyone tried making a bangle from shrinky? If so, how long a strip of shrinky would you need, and how do you get it to bend as it shrinks (? lay it around a bottle maybe???). Also, do you think it would be too brittle to wear? I don't have any shrinky at the moment so can't experiment right now.
Look forward to replies. Thanks.
