Here’s what you’ll need to create the project.
- Iron-On-Ink Sublimation Markers (Black, Original, Gnomie Botanical and Pastel markers)
- Poly Canvas Zip Case
- Sublimation Stamp Pad – Black
- Stamp set to use for your design
- Stamping Acrylic Block – or your MISTI stamping tool
- Plain Copy Paper
- LED Light Box
- Heat Tape
- Protective Paper
- Project Mat
- Lint remover
- Heat Source: Artesprix Heat Press, Dry Iron or Home Iron (without steam)
Place the Poly Canvas Zip Case on a piece of plain copy paper and trace the outline using a pencil to determine the area that you have to work on.
I free-handed my rainbow using Artepsrix Pastel Sublimation Markers.
I traced the Unicorn’s ears using a pencil and the coordinating die that came from the stamp set.
I used my Artesprix Fine Point Black Sublimation Marker to draw the Unicorn’s ears.
I placed my design inside my stamping tool to stamp the rest of the images, using the Artesprix Sublimation Stamp Pad.
I Placed my design on the light box to trace the sentiment using my Sublimation Marker.
It is important to use a lint roller to remover to remove any unecssary particles on your blank before pressing. This will ensure a clean crisp design transfer to your Artesprix Sublimation Poly-Canvas Zip Case.
Using Artesprix Heat Tape, tape your blank down to your design. [Designer tip: I used my LED light box to make sure that my images are perfectly centered. ] If you are using the Artesprix Heat Press, you only need one on each side to hold it down. If you are using an iron, you will need more. Sometimes the iron will cause the image to slip and you will get a ghost image. [Only use Artesprix Heat Tape on the outer edge of the design (not over it).]
Turn your heat press on and set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer for 45 seconds.
Create your sublimation sandwich. Cut two pieces of Protective Paper to cover your project on the top and bottom. [Designer tip: Make sure that your design is facing the heat source and the zipper is out of the way before you heat press.] Place it inside the Heat Press and close the machine. The Heat Press will beep indicating that your project is finished!
While wearing protective gloves lift the handle and take your sublimated Artesprix Sublimation Poly-Canvas Zip Case. Place it on the Protective Project Mat and give it a few minutes to cool down. Gently remove the paper to reveal the design!
Next, I wanted to add some, “bling.” My super-strong mixed media glue allowed me to adhere them onto the zip case and let me add to the gold bow to finish my design.
Adding the rhinestone jewels to the flowers was the perfect touch.
The Sublimation Markers blended so well to create the pastel rainbow! Here’s a closer look:
I cannot wait to create some T-shirts and Pet Bandanas! I really love how this one turned out!
