How to Transfer Infusible Ink Designs to Ceramic Coaster Blanks


How to Transfer Infusible Ink Designs to Ceramic Coaster Blanks In this video we’ll permanently infuse
custom artwork into a Ceramic Coaster blank, first with a design made with Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets, and then we’ll infuse a design made with Infusible
Ink pens and markers. First, use a sheet of white cardstock to protect your
Cricut EasyPress Mat. Then, we’ll take our pre-weeded transfer sheet and place
it on top of the coaster, ink side facing down. If it’s not gripping, secure it with
heat resistant tape to make sure it stays in place. Next, flip the coaster
over so its back side is facing up. Cover it using a sheet of butcher paper; just
make sure it’s larger than your heat plate. Confirm time and temperature
settings using our Heat Transfer Guide. And when your machine is good to go
place it directly on top. Try not to move a thing, and start the countdown timer. No
pressure is recommended, so go ahead and release the handle but don’t leave the
scene of the project. When time’s up, hold down the butcher paper and lift the
machine straight up. Be sure to let your coaster cool completely. Use extreme
caution. It gets really hot! Now, remove the butcher paper.
Carefully flip your coaster over, and remove the liner. If any pieces remain remove them using
your fingers. Perfect! Now, let’s transfer an Infusible
Ink design made with pens and markers. Again, protect your mat with a sheet of
white cardstock, and then place your artwork on your coaster, design side
facing down. Use heat resistant tape to secure the design perfectly in place.
Cricut pros tape around the edge to the back. Don’t skip this step. If you do, you
might end up with unwanted ghosting effects. Now, flip your coaster. Cover with butcher paper that’s larger
than your heat plate. And again, always confirm your time and temperature
settings using our Heat Transfer Guide. When Cricut EasyPress is ready place
it directly on top, making sure not to move your machine once it touches down.
Then, start the timer. Since no pressure is recommended, let go of the handle but,
again, don’t leave the scene. Once time’s up hold the butcher paper in
place and lift the machine straight up. Be sure to let your design cool and use
extreme caution. Ceramic coasters conduct heat and will
be really hot. Once completely cool remove the butcher paper,
followed by the tape, and the copy paper. And look at that
fully infused design! That’s it! Drink up!
