Polyshrink Shrink Plastic
Shrink plastic comes in 4 colors Black, White, Clear and Translucent
. Each package contains 8 sheets per color of this fun art material.
package is also available. It contains 2 sheets of each type.
Here are some basic instructions:
The polyshrink starts out in a flat 8" x 10.5"sheet. You can draw on it with permanent
markers or colored pencils or you can rubber stamp on it with permanent
or archival types of paint and ink. Then, you can use punches or
scissors to cut it into different shapes and sizes. The cutting can be
done before or after you add your own artwork or rubber stamp designs. Now for
the fun part. Place the pieces on a cookie sheet and place them in an
oven or even a toaster oven and watch them bend and twist. When the
shrinking is complete the pieces will lay flat. That is the indicator
that they are finished. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few
minutes. The pieces will have shrunk to approx. 45% of the original
size and will be approx. 1/4" thick. You can also use a Craft Heat Tool to shrink the pieces one at a time.
The package comes with
general instructions, baking tips and art supply suggestions as well.
This is a fun product to experiment with different combinations of mica powders, chalks and permanent inks to add color to the surface. You can also achieve different effects by sanding the surface. Sanding creates a tooth to the surface that adds texture and allows you to use colored pencils more easily. Each type of polyshrink is unique and very versatile for creating jewelry, embellishments, ornaments and more! A fun project for Birthday Parties, Girl Scouts, Rubber Stamp Groups and more!PolyShrink Listing
