DIY Artesprix Poly-Canvas Zip Case
Create a watercolor floral design using Iron-on-Ink
Hi! Ivy here from ivypinkmade. This is my first blog post for Artesprix and I’m so excited to design a Poly-Canvas Zip Case and show you another fun way to use your markers. Artesprix markers are water-based which gave me the idea to mix it with water and achieve a more watercolor painting effect.
Here is what you will need to complete an Iron-on-Ink Poly-Canvas Zip Case using Artesprix’s sublimation markers.
1. Artesprix Sublimation Markers
2. Artesprix Poly-Canvas Zip Case
3. Artesprix Stamp pad
4. Plain Copy Paper
5. Artesprix Protective Paper
6. Non-porous surface (I used a Teflon sheet)
7. Flower stamps
8. Water spritzer
Step by Step Instructions:
First I wanted to complete my watercolored background. I used different shades of pink that were in the same color family and drew small circle scribbles on the Teflon.
Then I used a water spritzer and sprayed the Teflon until the marker lines became large droplets.
Fold the Teflon sheet till the colors blend and then press your plain copy paper on top of the Teflon.
When you lift up you should have a blend of water colored background.
The colors will look muted and water-downed but don’t worry the colors will be more vibrant when its heat pressed.
Once your sheet is dry take the Artesprix zip pouch and trace around it to keep track of the space you want to stamp on.
Next, I used the Artesprix stamp pad to ink up my flower stamps and use them as the final touch of my design. After I pressed them onto my Iron-on-Ink water colored copy paper I colored in the centers of the flowers to give it a little depth. Then, I pressed them onto Iron-on-Ink water colored copy paper. I also colored in the centers of the flowers to give it a little depth.
Once you are done use scissors to trim around the outline of the workspace and place the image face down on your zip pouch. Then, tape your design down with Artesprix heat tape.
Cut two pieces of Artesprix protective paper and create (as Artesprix likes to call it) a “sublimation sandwich,” which means you place your project facing the top between two sheets of protective paper.
Set your heat press to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and 45 seconds for the timer. Make sure you place your project in your heat source facing up. After your timer has completed, make sure to let your project cool down before touching it.
Remove tape gently. It’s amazing once you remove the copy paper how vibrant the colors turned out to be.
I am still amazed every time I see the final reveal!

It’s so fun and easy I want to make more custom zip pouches to organize all the things!
