Christmas Deer Ceramic Coaster: How I made article 17

 Today's how I made is another infusible ink project. I used a ceramic coaster as my blank for this project. Follow along with this project and share your result in the Lizzsews Facebook group.


What I used:

Ceramic coaster

Infusible ink purple transfer sheets

Parchment paper

Cricut 

Standard grip mat

EasyPress 2 + mat

Cardstock


The steps I took:

I started out by looking for the design that I wanted, I was looking for a Christmas design that would fit nicely on the coaster. I ended up choosing the Christmas ornate deer design from the hungry JPEG. I downloaded the SVG and uploaded it into design space.


I mirrored the design, sized it and placed the infusible ink onto my mat, inked side up. Once I cut out the design, I bent the transfer sheet to remove excess material. 


Infusible ink feels like cardstock, a thick paper. To remove the excess material and weed the design, you bend/roll the transfer sheet until the material cracks away.


I placed the weeded design, liner side up (inked side down), onto my ceramic coaster in the positioning that I wanted. Before placing the design, I ensured to wipe down the coaster with a lint-free cloth.


I preheated my easypress 2 to 400°F. I used the Cricut heat guide to determine the temperature and amount of time/pressure to press with. I placed a piece of cardstock on top of the easypress mat, placed the ceramic coaster design faced down/on the cardstock and a piece of parchment paper on top of everything. Next, I placed the easypress 2 onto everything and left it with no pressure for 240 seconds.


Once the timer was up, I slowly lifted up the easypress 2. I waited until the liner was cool to the touch to peel as it was very hot.


I peeled up the liner and the transfer sheet pieces that no longer had their ink on them and the coaster looked great! I was very happy with the result and can't wait to gift it for Christmas!
