Prepare shrink plastic by sanding one side of the sheet. This is the side you will be drawing/coloring on. Wipe off the excess dust with a paper towel. Place the design under the shrink plastic and trace with a black permanent fine tip marker.
Cut out the design from the shrink plastic very carefully. Cut into the curves and flip the plastic so that you do not have to bend any of it. Bending the plastic can create tears in the plastic. Leave a small border around the design when cutting it out so that the design will stand out when it shrinks down.
Color in the design according to the pattern using colored pencils.
Shrinking the plastic – follow the manufacturer’s directions for shrinking the plastic. You can either use a small oven or the heat gun. If using the heat gun, use a wooden chopstick or similar to help hold the plastic sown when it is shrinking.
