Hey-Hey! Courtney again creating with a few products to complete a Poly-Towel craft. While using a Gel Press Plate and Brayer and Iron-on-Ink Markers I accomplished a fun pattern on an Artesprix Poly-Towel.
What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?
Artesprix Sublimation Markers are specialized ink markers that let you design and then transfer from copy paper to your polyester product with a heat source.
Materials and Tools:
- Copy Paper
- Gel Press Plates
- Gel Press Brayer
- Protective Paper
- Heat Tape
- Heat Press
Step 1: First, I taped 2 pieces of copy paper together to get full coverage of design space on the Poly-Towel.
Step 2: Next, I used the Artesprix Sublimation Markers by coloring on the Gel Press Plate with the Original Iron-on-Ink Markers.
Step 3: When the Gel Press is colored, I used the Gel Press Brayer to roll the design onto the copy paper.
Step 4: Then I taped the Poly-Towel to the design on the copy papers, and I also made a Sublimation Sandwich to ready it for the heat press. Press the Poly-Towel for 45 seconds and 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 5: Lastly, when the heat pressing was complete, I practiced my peek test to make sure my design transferred nicely.
