Tips

Friendly Shrink!

Something everyone should have perhaps?! In this case, I have combined friendly plastic and shrink plastic - this is so much fun you must try it! You never get the same result twice!

Here are some tips for when you do it:


Tip 1

Make sure you do this on a non stick, heat proof surface!


Tip 2

If your surface gets hot because you have been playing a while, when you heat the back of the friendly plastic and put the shrink plastic on the back, the friendly plastic may have melted and be sticking a bit to your non stick mat. Don’t worry - just leave it to cool down. Once it’s cool it will come off no problem.


Tip 3

If your shrink plastic bends round and sticks to itself, let it cool down a bit, then pull it gently apart - you’ll hear it snap! Carry on heating it. This was a tip given to me by the lovely Liz Gale!


Tip 4

If you touch melted friendly plastic it sticks to your finger and burns! If you need to touch it dip your finger in water first - the same for your craft tools, dip them in water before touching soft friendly plastic.


Have fun with it!
