These bandanas are great for your fur-babies… Not so much for my cat Toby was not having it… I’m surprised I was able to slip it over his head without getting scratched for a photo.
What are Artesprix Sublimation Markers?
Magic Ink that transfers their beautiful colors from plain copy paper to a polyester product with a heat source. Iron-on-Ink Markers are the way to personalize sublimation, which is specially formulated inks that transfer only when activated with heat.
Blank Pet Bandana
Pastel and Original Iron-On-Ink Sublimation Markers
Sublimation Ink Pad
Acrylic Stamp Block
Trinity Stamp’s Nutty Squirrel Stamp
Plain Copy Paper
Heat Press or Home Iron
Step 1: Trace your Bandana onto a plain piece of copy paper using a pencil. That way you know how much space you have to work with.
Pro Tip: Set your heat press at 385℉ for 30 seconds before you start working on your bandana. That way, the heat press will be hot enough to sublimate your images when you are finished.
Step 2: Stamp images within the traced area using the Sublimation Ink Pad and Acrylic Block.
Step 3: Next, use the Sublimation Markers to color in the images.
Step 4: With sublimation, often with fabrics you should prep your blank by using a lint roller to remove anything that can't be seen with the naked eye.
Step 5: Using heat tape, tape down the bandana (faced down) onto the paper.
Step 6: Place a piece of Protective Paper at the top and bottom of your bandana. Place your "Sublimation Sandwich" inside the heat press for 30 seconds at 385℉.
Step 7: Carefully, take a peek at the project using gloves. Then remove the heat tape and paper from the bandana to reveal your vivid design!
