Colouring on shrink plastic

Good morning everyone. What a great great challenge we have going on at Mad for Markers....!!!! I must say that there are so many mediums that you could colour. I love the idea of air brushing your shoes to match your outfit and if I had found some white shoes that match my dress for my sisters wedding than I would have done it. LOL.

Today I am going to show you the result of colouring Shrink Plastic.
You will need for this:
- Clear Shrink Plastic
- Staz On ink
- Copic markers.

Most of you may know that you can not colour in an image when you use Staz On - it stains and eventually ruins your marker tips. That is why I have used Clear plastic.

First of all I stamped my image on the plastic with the ink. I flipped over the image and coloured it in on the reverse side. That way I can still see where I am colouring and not ruining my markers. That is pretty much it. Shrink your plastic with your heat tool after you have cut out your shape.

Coloured before I heated.

Copics used: E39, E00, B23, R27, Y18, B29, R22.

This looks fabulous Tracey! I had a play with white shrink plastic, but it's not the same as using the clear, I am going to have to get some clear!
