I bought a mixed pack - it came with clear, "translucent" - which is like a frosted finish, white, and black.  So far I've used the clear and translucent, but I've seen the white used and it looks really good.

I've found that all kinds of pens, pencils, permanent and non permanent textas, gel pens etc have all worked really well.  One of the things you can do with the LuckySquirrel polyshrink is sand it lightly, and then almost any marker takes to it really well.  Once its shrunk, a light coat of clear gloss - acrylic craft gloss - about $2 from Spotlight, brings the surface shiny again, and the colours are amazingly vibrant and perfect.

I'm loving it.

Just went to workshop it (melbourne) today - and they only hv the black sheets left. It's A$14.35 for 6 sheets there. They are not sure when the new orders for the clear ones will come.

Anyhow, some online surfing got me to www.polymerclay.com.au - which has all 4 types of polyshrink - A$13.95 for 8 sheets, but don't know what the postage is.

About the shrinking of chip packets does anyone know how to actually doe this? I mean like how long to leave it in the oven for.

I haven't done it in years, but when we used to do it I think we'd just watch the chip packets until they were small. And then we'd take it out, let it cool, and take a hole punch to it to make it into a keyring Smiley

I found some!  I found some! I found some!  I found some!  I found some!  I found some!  I found some!   Grin
He he.  Can you tell I'm a little excited about it?  I found a little book that comes with four pages of shrinky paper.  The paper isn't big, but hey, the whole deal only set me back ten Aussie bucks.  It will keep me busy while I wait for on-line purchases to arrive anyway.  Oh yeah, it was from Borders.  I wish I'd thought to look there earlier, because I already knew it was an American franchise.  And they do seem to have almost everything.  I figure most capital cities will have a Borders store, but I can assure you Brisbane is out of stock.  I took the last one.  The sales guy there said they are happy to order stuff in for folks.

Thanks for letting us know, Miss_ Vicki, but Borders, really!?  What section of Borders was it in?

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

Yup!  Borders really.  In the childerns section.  There is a Klutz stand full of fun craft kits and books for kiddies.  There was quilting, sculpey, hair braiding, how-to-draw-Marvel-heros and shrinky dinks.
