Shrink Plastic

I decided to buy some shrink plastic from Joann's after seeing a project in a book. I am still in the learning phases. I made a few things. They did not turn out that great. I saw on another blog that you should sand the paper so that is has "tooth" which will allow the color to adhere better.
So last night I sanded the plastic sheet with 320 grit sandpaper in a criss cross fashion. I drew a horse, colored it, cut it out, baked it.....and guess what. It turned out GREAT. I am going to make it into a pin. It is a paint horse for those of you that are interested. I will be posting to my shop soon. www.akkricket.etsy.com
Off to perfect my techniques.
