Hi there,

I have been shrink wrapping my soaps and tarts and sometime

no matter how quick and careful I am with my heat gun....

sometime the shrink wraps would split, tear or whatever.....

is there such thing as thicker shrink wraps that don't rip, tear while shrinking??

any help or pointers greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks

Hugs

There are 2 thicknesses of shrink film but one has to get to hot for candles, can't remember which.

You just have to seal the film real good then be careful and wave the gun to avoid burning a hole.

If you have a heat gun that only has one setting then that may be to hot. Get a gun that has temp. settings and it should work better.

Here is some good info on How to Shrink Wrap http://www.essencesupply.com/shrink/shrink.html

Try a hair dryer instead.

no hair dryer melt the tarts cause they take longer to shrink wrap then a heat gun does.

so i use my heat gun...which works great for shrinking but

on some I get a hole in them. :(

CANDLE MAN...WOW YOU'RE SO AWESOME WITH INFORMATIONS!!!! THANK YOU!!!

I find those heat embossers you get at Michaels or JoAnns in the stamps department work really well! With the 40% off coupon you can get them really really cheap

that is what i was using!! still gives me grief!! which is why i think i need a thicker gauge shrink wraps...and i haven't seen anything higher then 80 gauge in bags....only on cello rolls...which i'll have to try and use...
