What Do You See Artesprix?

Hi! Just here creating with a the Artesprix Ink Refill and a Gel Press Plate. You may remember I worked on my Artesprix T-Shirt Project a few weeks ago where I made an ink splatter that actually sparked a little creativity for this project. Follow along to see the outcome and play along with the “What Do You See Artesprix?”

What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?

These are creative tools that you can use to create a sublimation project with. Either being new or skilled in the area of sublimation, you can make anything you want with these specialized ink markers and a polyester or polyester coated material.

Materials and Tools: 

Step-by-Step Tutorial: 

Step 1: Starting off I trace a Coaster 4 times as a template for measuring out my design.

Step 2: Next, I use a little water and a few drops of the Ink Refill and use an eye dropper to drop the mixture onto a Gel Press Plate.

Step 3: After the Gel Press Plate has droplets all around it, I use the Gel Press Brayer to roll the design onto the 4 pieces of copy paper.

Step 4: With the ink splatter picked up by the copy paper and Gel Press Brayer, I let them dry and then I use Heat Tape to tape the Coasters to the designs.

Step 5: Now, with my heat press set to 400˚ Fahrenheit, I place my Sublimation Sandwiched Coasters in my heat press and press for 90 seconds.

Step 6: Finally it is time for the peek test. A test to peek and see that my design transferred smoothly.

Now! What Do You See Artesprix? 

So my previous project inspired me to do a collection of Coasters that resemble the Rorschach Test. So, what do you see Artesprix? I think these will be a great conversation starter during game nights at my house. Want to see another fun Coaster project? Click here!
