    what if you don’t have a toater oven?? and what do you set the toaster oven on….bagels???

  5. queenvanna Says:

    o-no, you’ve got jokes.

    you can use the regular oven, but it’s more work… if you’re gonna make more than a few, i’d say invest in a $cheapy$ toaster oven. =)

    Yes, I’ve made some earrings out of shrinky dink. What’s funny is when young people would come by my booth, and I explain that they are made from shrinky dink, they just give me blank stares. Guess you gotta be in you late 20’s, 30’s or 40’s maybe???

    What kind of inks do you use on your shrinky dinks? I know that the color can become “off” if you use certain inks, but yours look great, start to finish!

    also, do you have to use different inks to print on the white, non-rough sheets?

    thanks!!

    i use a permanent ink for all types – the clear, the white and the rough ones… the rings i make will smear a little if i have particularly sweaty hands (another reason i don’t sell them), but otherwise, the ink pretty much stays put!
