Shrink plastic, also known as shrink film and shrinky dink paper starts out as a regular looking thick sheet of white A4.
You can print your pictures or designs directly through your inkjet printer onto both sides of the Shrink plastic.
Firstly, decide how big you want your finished shrink film piece to be then double the size of the print. This way, when your piece heat shrinks by half during the process, you’ll end up with the size you want.
Once you’ve printed out your design, cut it out of the film leaving no border. If you are making funky kids jewellery, now is the time to punch the holes that you need into the film so that you have holes for earring fixtures or necklace string.
Now place into a pre heated oven for a few minutes. You’ll see your shrink plastic reduce in size and harden into your finished piece.
Choose between regular shrink plastic sheets which are white or transparent, clear shrink plastic.
