Draw or Print on your Shrink Film


I am not very good at drawing on shrink film or drawing with permanent markers so I use digital designs I have already created. My digital designs are based on my own sketches and part of my work. Please do not copy my designs, create your own, it is much more fun! I have friends who make their Shrink Film pieces from their own hand drawings and do a lovely job with permanent markers and pencils. 

It is important to know that they Shrink to about ¼ (or smaller) even though the instructions say they shrink to half. I think they mean half in all directions. Keep this in mind with your designs. See my main photo for an example of how much Shrink actually happens.

The shiny Shrink Film to draw on can be a challenge. I use a pencil (which erases well on the shiny stuff, but not on the matte or inkjet) to draw the outline then colouring pencils (just a cheap regular pack of pencils). As the piece shrinks the colour will intensify, so keep this in mind, especially when using the permanent markers.

If you are using the Inkjet film you need to plan out your page (in your chosen illustration software) so you can fit on as many pieces as possible to waste the least amount of film (but remember to leave at least enough room to comfortably cut them out). You then need to print it out onto the film (test on paper first). You should set your printer to average quality (not draft as the quality is too poor and not any type of photo quality, I used plain paper quality). The printer I used is a Canon. I have been told the Epson printers are unsuitable for Shrinkies (something about the ink). Also, don’t use a laser printer, your film will melt!

For the draw on Shrinkies I used off cuts of Shrink film from a workshop. For inkjet I used whole sheets. You can save your decent offcuts for making more things. Shrink film is great to play with and make little bits and pieces (more Instructables will be coming with details on how to make some other things with Shrink plastic).

Developing Shrink Film Charms

Since Printcess shut its doors, I’ve been at a reduction regarding where to resource my acrylic charms. Zap! and InkIt are both feasible contenders, with InkIt’s beauties being closer to the general aesthetic I like for charms, and their clear appeals looking super slick. While I await InkIt to open their rasterization service, motivation struck. My friend, Cassie Freire (@ ferretparty), lately did a set of Catnip Circle double appeals offered in either Mela or Pera tastes. These lovable charms, including one big appeal of among the two ladies, and one smaller sized appeal, struck me as being a great product to operate in a small group. This kind of prototyping provides itself well to an item I’ve only messed around in as soon as- shrink film charms.
I designed some 7″ Kara three times the appeals- two Kara styles readily available, a pencil beauty, and either a blackberry or some paperbark. These Kara beauties had two sides- wonderful girly Kara or daring buttkicking Kara. After mindful examination with the ever before great Cassie and the generous Zoey Hogan (@ caporushes), I took the plunge in to the world of shrink film beauties.
I very recommend Zoey’s wonderful blog as a resource if you’re interested in making little manufacturing run charms on your own.
I understood that I preferred my charms to be electronically colored, but the idea of inking them digitally had not been delighting. I chose to attempt something new (for me), inking them commonly with a fude pencil, after that scanning them and coloring them. Typically, if I start in a tool, I attempt to stay in that tool, yet electronic inking takes me days whereas typical inking takes hours, and I seemed like the experiment was worth it.
I browsed my inks at 600 DPI, much larger than essential, yet I desired them to be as sharp as possible.
I’ll admit that my digital coloring design isn’t very advanced- layers after layers of shading established to on multiply with certain degrees of opacity. When my files start obtaining huge, I start setting up groups and flatting out layers. Working this means is a little bit evocative exactly how I do watercolor and colored pen job- layers after layers.
These lovable beauties, showcasing one big charm of one of the 2 ladies, and one smaller charm, struck me as being a superb product to run in a little batch. I made some 7″ Kara three-way beauties- 2 Kara layouts available, a pencil charm, and either a blackberry or some paperbark. After mindful consultation with the ever before fantastic Cassie and the reasonable Zoey Hogan (@ caporushes), I took the plunge in to the world of shrink film appeals.

Roller conveyors can be made use of with polyolefin, PVC, and reduce polyethylene movies. The area in when comparing the rollers is loaded with warm air from all-time low of the tunnel to diminish the film layer around the object, producing a closed bundle. When made use of with polyolefin and PVC based movies the rollers are called “live” or turning. When used with polyethylene movies the rollers are called “lifeless” or not spinning. The passages with Teflon mesh belts and polymer mesh belts are utilized for smaller bundles, or when the plan might have a weakness and require a steady system.
Some heat shrink passages have 2 or additional areas for heating and controlled air conditioning.
