Plastic Shrink Charm tutorial by Capukat Plastic Shrink Charm tutorial by Capukat
For making inkjet charms!
~~~~~

Extras:

- If you want a backside to your charm, make sure you line up the images correctly so that the backside is an INVERSE of the front side. If you simply do a horizontal image flip, it might not be perfectly aligned so make sure the border width on all sides remains the same. If it isn't, be sure to measure and change accordingly!

Materials:

- You can get most of the materials in an arts & crafts store. If there isn't one near you, you can find these items on Amazon.com! Just make sure you get them from a reputable seller!

Fonts:

-Titles: Got heroin?
-Body Text: Turkeyface

Answered Questions:
- Why do I need to lower the opacity?
    • Because when the charms bake, they will darken and regain their color saturation. 50% is the instructed opacity change!

Again, thanks so much for the turtorial, I was finally able to make my own :D macnroo.deviantart.com/art/Pla…

I might add to it though that the charms curl up in the oven then flatten out. Not sure if I'm just that dumb but on my first try I took them out when they started curling because I thought that was bad and ended up with little spoons xD

great tutorial! one question though, if your charm is bent when you take it out of the oven dose it matter how you put something on it to apply pressure to fix it? Like will the ink come off at all?

This was very useful

I have one question: would it be optimum to use white sheets of the shrink plastic, or the clear opaque kind?

I don't believe there's the clear kind for inkjet ones? I think those are the ones where you draw on them directly but I may be wrong.. I have not tried those before!

For inkjet shrinky dinks, these are the only and best kind I know of !

I was doing some searching and there actually are clear inkjet ones. Done by grafix, so I was wondering if there was any translucence after you baked them.

Lately though there seems to be a lot of faulty product being shipped so I was a little bit weary ;w;

but knowing that you reinforce the shrink dink brand puts me at ease. Thanks for responding!
