Artesprix Masterpiece In Progress Door Hanger

Hello creative!  Rita Barakat here today, I’m a mixed media artist, and I love drawing, painting, color and anything creative! Today we are using a sublimation door hanger for a Masterpiece in progress with Iron-on-Ink! My studio is in my home, so I thought I would make a hanger for the door to let others know when I’m working and there is a masterpiece in progress! You don't need any fancy equipment, like a printer, to get started.

What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?

Artesprix markers enable you to draw on regular printer paper and transfer it onto sublimation blank materials such as aprons, t-shirts, tumblers and more! This process is so easy and fun!

Materials:
Door Hanger
Heat press or Household Iron
Copy Paper
Pencil 
Scissors
 
Step-by-Step Tutorial:
Step 1: Create a template with pencil for your Door Hanger, pencil doesn’t transfer, and it will be less likely that it marks up your blank.

Step 2: Add your design using Artesprix Sublimation Markers. I've noticed that I tend to use the fine tip black Artesprix marker  that only comes in the Black Sublimation Marker kit. It makes those really fine black  lines that make your projects pop!

Pro Tip: Don't worry about coloring a little outside of the lines - it makes it look more natural and handmade.

Step 3: With your finished design on the table face up,  secure the Door Hanger face down with heat tape. Always tape around your design, never over it. 

Pro Tip: I'm using the Artesprix Heat Press so I only need a couple pieces of heat tape, but if your using a handheld press or a home iron, you'll want to use more heat tape.

Step 4: Make a sublimation sandwich. The Iron-on-Ink design should be secured face down on the top side of the sublimation sandwich.

Step 5: Double check Time, Temperature, and Pressure instructions before doing your transfer. For the Door Hanger, the temperature needs to be 400℉, and the transfer time is 90 seconds.

Step 6: Peek test! Before you move any tape, peel back a small part of the paper to ensure you got a good transfer.

Step 7: Once you have confirmed your transfer was successful, reveal your design! When I saw those stunning bold colors on the surface I was so excited! Each time blows me away, there is such a difference from the color of the markers on the paper verses when they have been heat transferred.
