1.) Use Prismacolor pencils to color the rough surface, it is the BEST colored pencil on the market, and the best for shrinky dinks
2.) To get really great color saturation, don't use a light hand in drawing/coloring, use plenty of pressure and define your lines clearly and remember that it's going to SHRINK, so make letters and details very articulated, and if you're making necklaces, earrings, etc. punch the holes BEFORE you shrink it! While that seems obvious, you'd be amazed at how many people forget that step.
3.) When you put your shrinky dink in the oven and it curls up like crazy: DO NOT PANIC, it will flatten out if you wait... and if it doesn't uncurl all the way, use a spatula and tongs to guide it while under the heat to flatten it. You can also shape it a little when it's out of the oven. I use a toaster oven, and I always keep my oven mitts handy!
4.) Yep, it's plastic, some sanding may be necessary, and to seal it, use Krylon Clear Coat in glossy or flat to preserve it.
I have been teaching crafts for 10 years now, and I have to say, hands down, everyone freaks out when it's time to make Shrinky Dinks, it's a favorite.
Honestly, I may purchase these for a Girls Night, as I think even other adults would enjoy these, and I wish I had known about them before my wedding as I could have made favors or centerpieces or place cards using them The next time I host a shower for someone, I will.
These are a blast for all ages. My only complaint is they are expensive for the number of sheets you get, but as long as you're careful about using as much of each page as possible, you can make a lot of things for way less than any class or even taking kids to a movie.
I like to use different shaped hole punches and make tags, keyrings or buttons.
I found that an embellishment heat gun is better than an oven to shrink the plastic. This means you don't have to leave your oven on for hours if you're being crafty for hours. You just turn on the heat gun when you want it. When I do this I put the shrink plastic in the bowl or cup, and because of the wind you'll have to hold it down initially with a skewer.
