Shrink Plastic

Earlier this week Jo Myhill used Shrink Plastic in her project on the Paperartsy blog. I wanted to make something with shrink plastic as well. I am sure we have it, but where is it? After a long search in our large pile of stamping and scrapbooking supplies, I thought I found it. I coloured it, stamped an image on it, and started to heat it. Whatever I tried, so shrinking... Turned out, I had used acetate, it said plastic on the package ...

Long search again. Now I found it, it is called 'Krimpie Dinkie' in the Netherlands, and it even has a manual how to use it. (Yes, I read the manual). I painted it with Brown Shed fresco paint, stamped the image from HP1108, heated up the oven, and waited. Now it shrinked, which is always very nice to watch. This is the result. The colour turned out a bit dark. Next time, I use a lighter colour.


I painted the ATC with Sky Blue fresco paint, and then dry brushed Baltic Blue fresco paint on top. The upper right corner is made with Grunge Paste, the cogs stamp from Clocks 5, and Treasure Gold. The face and the text are also from the HP1108 sheet.

Looks really great Mark, must have taken you ages to cut it carefully before shrinking. And I love the Dutch name for shrink plastic! Jo xx

Gorgeous colour choices, blue and brown work so well. it is amazing how intense the colours become when you shrink the plastic.

I love the quirkiness of this! It is always best to use a really pale colour for SP as you say. I find really pale blues and yellows work well. Having said this, I do think this little figure works really well! Love the sentiment. I think I need that one! Julie Ann xx
