HELP!!! SHRINK PLASTIC

Post by Guest on Fri 12 Dec 2008 - 15:59

Somewhere in the paperwork piling up in my craft room, I know I have Jo's instructions for shrink plastic but do you think I can find them??? Can I hell? Someone be a love and tell me whether you colour on the BACK (i.e. the rough side) of the shrink plastic before you shrink it, or on the FRONT (i.e. shiny side).

I have a project to do at my craft club tomorrow and can't remember, and don't want to look like a silly eejit!! (or should that be "again" on the end of that sentence??)

Thanks very much

I think I used the rough side, haven't done any for ages. Have you tried googling it?

Thanks girls! I just knew you would know. Yes, tried googling but couldn't find exactly that instruction! Found plenty of ideas there though.

Actually, it doesn't make much difference to the end result, but the rough side gives more key to the colours.

If you have the sp that's smooth on both sides, you can lightly sand it yourself before colouring.

Depends what shrink plastic you are using and what effect youwant too Patty. I now this is too late now.

If its the clear/pearl one, then colouring on the rough side will give a sea glass effect and the smooth side,stained glass effect.

On the white it doesn't really matter but like Lou said it sticks better to the rough side.
