Designer Tips: . IMPORTANT: read all the directions and tips on the shrink film packaging before beginning the project. The shrinking technique may require some trial and error, but the package comes with plenty to work with. . If you don't sand the shrink film, your pieces will remain clear when baked. If you do, they will have a frosted look. . The shrink film will curl up in the heat, then it will slowly uncurl and lay flat. When it lies completely flat, it is done. If it stays slightly curled, you can flatten it with a pad of paper or similar object while it is still hot out of the oven. If it stays in the oven too long or too little, it can get distorted and harden that way. . The pastel markers work great on the sanded shrink plastic. The marker colors will appear many shades darker once the piece has shrunk because it will be more concentrated. . To keep the front of the tag smooth and glass-like, bake the piece with the glossy, un-sanded side up. . Inking the edge of the pendant with black StazOn® gives it a nice finished look.
