Our daughter went off to college, so we wanted to send her something to remind her of her hometown. We started in one direction and ended up having to reverse course. It still came out great.
It s a Hot One this week! We are playing with Sublimation Printing and Heat Transfer.
We found an Epson Artisan 1430 larger format printer in eBay. We won it for only $180, so we decided to try to do some sublimation printing. We picked up a continuous ink system that allows us to run sublimation dye through the printer.
Then we picked up a heat press with some attachments to apply the transfers to other things like mugs, cups, plates... We wanted to make sure we had all the attachments, just in case.
We even bought a bunch of poly sprays so we could try to heat transfer on to all types of materials. We sprayed it on a t-shirt, a tumbler, and a piece of scrape wood.

We Failed Trying to Make an Epoxy Resin Glitter a Tumbler, Its not as easy as they make it look on YouTube.
First we coated the stainless steel tumbler with Mod Podge and then in glitter. We waited until it was dried and then applied another coat of Mod Podge and another coat of glitter.
Next we coated the tumbler in epoxy resin. While we were trying to get the bubbles out of the resin we set it on fire a few times. We let it dry overnight.
Then we put the vinyl decal on the tumbler and another coat of epoxy resin. It didn't come out as we had hoped. We had some issues. We will try it again soon.

Here is our submission for Rag and Bone Brown's Bowl Without a Lathe Challenge #BWALC . We tried to do something a bit different with this challenge, but no too different... I mean, were aren't Master Craftsmen. In this video we made a bowl without a lathe, using some balsa wood, copper wire and the Cricut Maker.
Thank you Keith from Rag and Bone Brown! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVyE...
