heres a list of things i used

shrinkles clear (hobbycraft sell among others, although avoid postal as its easy to mark it when shoved throught the letterbox, i learned that the hard way)
sharpie pens, or any permanent marker (other colours of shrinkles are available and ordinary pens and pencils work on these because they have a smooth side and a frosted side, but the clear doesn't)
masking tape (forgot to photo it)
some pictures to trace over
graph paper (because mine are for windows, but you can skip that part if making a mirror or similar)



first up is to make a mini ruler. trace over your own ruler marking the millimeters and centimetres. its worth taking your time over this and getting it as accurate as possible. bake the plastic in the oven for approx 5 minutes on 110C. i baked on a baking tray with foil, just the tray, a pyrex dish and a ceramic tile. i found the pyrex dish best



you can now use this mini ruler to measure your window, make a note of the size then get your full scale ruler and cut your shrinkle plastic to that size (it always shrinks the same amount so measure what you want the final result to be with the mini ruler)

stick the graph paper (i used a diamond pattern, but again you only need this if using it to trace for the pattern. tape that to your work surface. tape a sheet of shrinkle plastic over the top then slide you picture you wish to trace under the plastic.




trace with picture with black permanent marker then colour



bake in the oven same as you did for the ruler and hey presto Very Happy



i am going to try it for making floor tiles with fleur di lys pattern and probably a few other emblems. my daughter made a few keyrings by hole punching he design before baking

EDIT make sure you place your plastic in the oven with the side you have drawn on uppermost, do not allow the ink to com into contact with whatever you are baking on
