Dylon Image Maker
Hi lovely ladies and gents
I've done a quick search for posts relating to this and couldnt find any, so apologies if I've missed any!
Ive been trying to transfer images onto t shirts using Dylon Image Maker, but the fabric keeps going really stiff, like there is a piece of card stuck to the t shirt! This isn't quite the effect I was after, and was wondering if anyone else had used this and whether they had any tips?
oh! it sounds exactly like gel medium ...
it is this stuff painters mix with their acrylics to add effects like gloss or textures...
it is also a white-ish liquid
there is another process where u still get the hand of the fabric
u use something called Versa-tool
it is like a soldering iron with different tips (dime-shaped tip, pointed tip etc)
it's used for cutting stencils too ... you just heat it up and burnish the back of the photocopy onto the fabric
it takes a while and you do need something very fine (for ex. satin) and u just don't overdo it else it burns the fabric/paper...
another way is to use Xylene
it can exist in a blender pen (for markers)... i also saw it sold separately in an oil tin sort of box
it has a strong smell so must do it outside
actually i use a respirator for that type of thing ... even with bleach i use a filter
here's a good link !
