What is Artesprix Iron-on-Ink?
Artesprix Iron-on-Ink is a game-changer for crafters. It's a specialized sublimation ink that allows you to transfer vibrant designs onto compatible surfaces with heat and pressure. Unlike traditional sublimation, which requires expensive printers, Artesprix makes it accessible for all makers. Once your design is transferred, it's permanently infused, making it durable and long-lasting.

Step-by-Step Tutorial:
Step 1: Start by tracing the shape of your jewelry blank insert onto a piece of regular copy paper using a pencil. This will help you position your design perfectly.

Step 2: I've chosen some stamps from my stash, including a cute sunflower and a little bird on a branch. Place your traced paper into your stamping platform or use a stamping block.

Step 3: Ink your stamp with black Artesprix Sublimation Ink and press it onto the paper. If you're using a MISTI, you can re-stamp to ensure good coverage. For my sunflower design, I stamped it slightly off-center to capture the flower within the blank’s shape.

Step 4: Now it’s time to color! Using Artesprix Sublimation Markers, fill in your stamped design. These markers are easy to use, though they don't blend like alcohol-based markers. Start with your base colors and layer for more vibrant effects. For my sunflower, I used yellow, orange, and brown for a realistic look, and blues for the background and honey jar cover.
Step 5: Tape the finished design to the white side of the Jewelry Pendant with Artesprix Heat Tape. Make sure everything is securely in place to avoid shifting during the heat transfer.

Step 6: For the "Sublimation Sandwich” cut two pieces of Protective Paper to place above and below the secured design. Ensure the project is positioned so the design is face-down on the top. The Protective Paper prevents ink from getting on your work surfaces.

Step 7: Preheat your heat press to 400°F and set the timer for 45 seconds. Place your "sublimation sandwich" on a Protective Project Mat. Press down with firm pressure.

Step 8: Before removing all the tape, peel back a small section of your design to ensure a successful transfer. If everything looks good, remove the tape and reveal your custom Jewelry Pendants.

Step 9: Let your blanks cool down before handling. Once cool, remove the protective adhesive paper in the bezel and insert your designs. Add a chain or to earring hooks and your custom jewelry pendants are now ready to wear or gift!

I absolutely love how these pendants turned out! They are vibrant and unique, perfect for adding a personal touch to any outfit. If you create your own jewelry pendants using Artesprix Iron-on-Ink, I’d love to see your creations! Share your projects using #Artesprix, and #IrononInk.
Remember, if I can make it, you can too!
Big Hugs!
