Shrink Plastic Sheets
Shrink plastic sheets with a matt and shiny side that you can decorate and make into figures.
How to use shrink plastic sheets: Colour in with markers designed for shiny surfaces, e.g., Plus Color markers, Uni Posca markers or markers intended for glass and porcelain. On the matt side, you can also colour in with coloured pencils and crayons If your shrinkage plate is transparent, you can draw according to your own template. Place your template under the shrinkage plate, trace and allow to dry. Cut out and make a hole for any pendants (largest pipe hole in a hole punch). Place in a preheated standard oven (not convection or steam) at 170 ? on baking paper for a few seconds. Keep an eye on the oven door. First the shrinkage plate curls up and straightens up again. Remove the shrunken motif from the oven and allow to cool. If it hasn't straightened out completely, you can put a book on top so that it gets a little pressure and is completely flat.
You can use the finished motifs and figures for many different creative projects:.
- Make pendants for your homemade jewellery, e.g., bracelets, necklaces and earrings
- Create your own personal keychains
- Make a stylish charm to hang on your bag
Shrink plastic sheets shrink up to 40% in the oven. The exciting shrinking process is fascinating for both children and adults to follow. You can directly see how the shrink plate changes character and size in the short time it is in the oven. Working with shrink plastic sheets can therefore be a perfect activity if you want to gather your family for some creative fun. Children can draw on the shrink plastic sheets themselves and create their own imaginative figures. For extra convenience, we also have shrink plastic sheets with pre-printed motifs that are ready to colour and shrink. The finished, small artworks can then be used to decorate a child’s room, or they could be homemade gifts for grandparents.
