What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?

Sublimation is a process that helps transfer specialized inks with a heat source. So with the use of the Artesprix Markers you can use them to draw out any design and transfer with heat to say, a cute Heart Shaped Ornament.

Materials and Tools:

  • copy paper
  • heart shaped ornament (February – BOTM)
  • pencil
  • markers
  • heat source 
  • protective paper
  • heat tape
  • project mat

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: First, trace the Heart Shaped Ornament on a plain piece of copy paper. (Trace 2x if you’re creating for both sides.)

Step 2: Now, use the Sublimation Markers to design the copy paper tracing.

Step 4: Finally, create the signature Artesprix Sublimation Sandwich. Protective Paper, Heart Shaped Ornament with taped design closest to heat source and another piece of Protective Paper on top. Place the sandwich in the heat press as is and press for 60 seconds at 400˚ F.

Step 5: Let the Heart Shaped Ornament cool, and you can take a peek and see your creation by lifting a corner of the copy paper gently. After peeking you can  pull off the Heat Tape and reveal the designed ornament.

My Thoughts on the BOTM!

The Artesprix Blank of the Month is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I enjoy the mystery of not knowing what’s new coming to their lineup of special monthly products. Share your BOTM on the social medias. I know I’d love to see your creations and others will too!
