How to Sublimate Glitter HTV on Canvas
When I was at Dollar Tree recently I noticed these black canvas boards and knew they’d make a great substrate for this project. I’ve shared a similar technique with the Mario Drawstring bag I created for my son, but this version works with black substrates since the sublimation ink does not show up. This eliminated you having to cut the sublimation print to fit the design. As I mentioned, this hack is great for more than just this Dollar Tree Canvas, so let’s go over the supply list…
What you will need:
Cricut Machine of your Choice
Design of your Choice (I created this one in Cricut Design Space)
I whipped up a quick video to show you the process, check it out below…
Wasn’t that easy? It really is as easy as it looks, so let’s walk through the steps:
Select your design, and load the glitter HTV (shiny side down) on the mat. Cut and weed. Print an ombre design of your choice on your sublimation printer.
Set your heat press to 320 degrees for 15 seconds. Center the HTV on the canvas and press. Remove the carrier sheet.
Set the heat press to 380 degrees for 40 seconds. (in the video I had it set at 15 seconds, but repressed it for another 30 off-camera)
Place the ombre sublimation print on top of the glitter HTV, cover it with butcher paper, and press.
Remove the sublimation print to reveal the design.
I hope you give this technique a try, if you do be sure to tag me on social @michellespartyplanit so I can see your wonderful creations!
