buy shrinky plastic
I really want to make something with shrinky plastic/dink, but I can’t find it at any online store in Europe.
I found it only at US, but the shipping expenses for Greece is more than the product cost.
Do you have any idea where can I find 2 packs of printable shrinky plastic?
Thank you in advance...
Maybe you can get someone to swap you some? If you go to the swap section and ask nicely I am sure you will get someone to swap with you I haven't found any shrinky stuff over here either
ebay??? and anyway even if you have to pay in dollars it will probably work out cheaper
Thank you very much for your interest, I just bought it from ebay (uk)...
In case you don't have shrink plastic on hand, number 6 plastic works exactly the same way.
Lots of takeout containers are made of that kind of plastic.
It's free and hey, you get food!
here's a link to make shrink plastic from no. 6 plastic
My guess is that you could find it at a toy store, since Shrinky Dink makers are sold as toys. Here in the US, there are all kinds of Shrinky Dink refill packs and special kits. Otherwise, try the #6 plastic. It's also called polystyrene, and it's often used to hold things like strawberries. Or if you get take out and it has a clear top, that's the stuff too. You have to sand it a bit before you use it, so the colors stay in place.
