Springing Into April With The Artesprix Pastel Marker Pack

Spring Time Crafting

Hello! Courtney here creating with the Artesprix Pastel Marker Pack and the Blank of the Month, a Sequin Pillow Case! Did you know you could transfer these markers to sequins? You can! As long as they are polyester material. Many are but you always want to be sure to check. Iron-on-Ink makes it easy for you by providing the ones that you can transfer to.

What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?

Artesprix Sublimation Markers are tools to use in the process of sublimation. The markers are filled with the inks that supply the color for the transfer you can make to polyester or polyester coated items. So springing into April with the Artesprix Pastel Marker Pack can really add those pretty colors to any sublimation project.

Materials and Tools: 

Step-by-Step Tutorial: 

Step 1: To start, you can trace out a designated spot you may want to use on the pillow (sequin side.) I am having my design lay randomly all over the pillow so I made sure to have my designs on the smaller side so that everything would fit.

Step 2: Next, I used a Silhouette Cameo to sketch out the designs I want for my pillow case.

Step 3: After that, I placed the little cut out designs all over my pillow with heat tape. Make sure to adhere your design to the shimmery white side.

Step 4: Now gather enough protective paper to cover the bottom and top of the pillow case, making a large sublimation sandwich and press the BOTM at 400˚ Fahrenheit for 60 seconds.

Step 6: When the pressing time is up try a peek test to ensure the transfer of your design moved on over to the Sequin Pillow Case.
