Polyshrink colored with Polychromos

Good morning to you all!!! 
Here is Giò........ today I want to show you how realize some delicious charms for your jewels.
The technique is the Polyshrink colored with Polychromos.
It is simple and fast and you don't need to be good in coloring so this is a technique that everybody can try.

This is the list of supplies you will need:
Sand Block
Stamps I used  
Penguin Love
 Birdie Love     
Penguin Trio
Staz On Ink
Johnson's baby oil or if you prefer Mineral  Oil
Heat tool
Diamond Glaze or other gloss

First of all you need to sand the Polyshrink surface, in this way the ink will adhere it better.

With Staz On stamp your image on Polyshrink.

 You can color with Polychromos as you prefer, I usually use at least two colors
to take depth to the image.....

 Continue to color and don't exaggerate, remember that when Polyshrink reduce
themselves the colors saturate.

Now with a stump wet with oil blend the colors as they merge in.

 Cut the image carefully.

Punch the top and don't use a too small punch because the hole will grow smaller.

Heat the Polyshrink with the heat tool that will grow smaller. As you heat it the piece will crumple.....
don't be afraid, it will be normal again at the end of the process......

Then to help yourself you can put an acrylic block as you turn the heat tool off.

To protect and polish the surface use a gloss.

Here are my charms ready..... aren't they too cute?

I realized a bracelet, but you can also realize earrings, necklaces and more else!!!

I really hope that this way to use the stamps will like you and my tutorial will be helpful.
