Cute. Love the tree.

As far as the runny ink goes, DO NOT SPRAY IT WITH ANYTHING. I tried to do that once. Even lightly from far away. I mean, it looks cool and spotty, and I love it now, but not that day.

One time I covered a runny one with a wide piece of clear packing tape (carefully laying pendant face down on top of sticky side of tape), cut tape to size with an xacto after it was stuck on, and then coated the tape. Worked good for me. I don't suppose you would even have to coat over the tape. Just the sides and bottom of the 'dink.

These are awesome! I've been rocking craftster for a few years now and think this may be my favorite use of shrinky dink I've seen yet. Great job!

Those are fantastic!
I wish they sold Shrinky Dinks in the UK, it would be easier than trying to find the right type of plastic.

I hope the clear tape thing works Cheesy because that is a gorgeous pendant. The designs are all great Smiley

I seal my inkjet-printed shrink plastic thingies with clear spray acrylic, and have had no issues with them whatsoever.  The inkjet ink can flake off, as well as smear if it gets wet, so you simply must seal them with something.

Do a really quick and light initial coat of spray, and let it dry fully before adding more coats, letting each coat dry fully before you add more.  Don't spray so much that it gets puddled on the plastic before it dries, because that will harm your nice sharp image.  I usually do three quick light coats, then a fourth heavier coat.  Works for me!
