How to transfer images to fabric - Two Awesome ideas!
Lumi Sunfold Painting Kit - Uses the Sun to Transfer Images to Fabric!!
If you haven't tried this, get the kit and see just how cool this can be. You can take your own photos or designs, and with this kit you turn them into negatives onto a clear sheet (all in the kit) and with the help of the sunlight you have your image onto any natural fabric. Check out the video below:
This UV activated process is non chemical and will wash well (which was always a problem with other ways of transferring images) You can now add your artwork to clothing, tote bags and more. Or just create a large canvas to display artwork as well, but since we are talking wearable art I thought this video and product would be an awesome idea!!
Technology has come a long way, and this is the perfect way to do your own printing in house. Take your artwork or designs you have on your computer and follow the instructions on turning them into a negative and print with the supplies included then watch your creation become real on clothing, bags, whatever is made from natural fibers. It is non toxic and fun to use. An alternative to screen printing.
Making your own Fabric Printer Sheets
If you love the idea of wearable or useable art for your crafts to make and sell then here is a great tutorial on just how to print photos onto fabric for all your crafts. There are a few ways to do this, but using the right products really helps.
You can purchase special fabrics for using in your printer, but it can get expensive. You can also make your own fabric paper. It is easy with the right products.
Check out the video below and you can see just how simple and affordable it is to make your own printer fabric especially if you have a lot of crafts to do or you want to have control over the type of fabric being used. You can experiment a bit too.
You can get the supplies needed to do this at craft stores but you can also get the BUBBLEJET SETon Amazon, as well as the FREEZER PAPER SHEETS for doing your transfers.
If you love photography, this is another great way to sell your pictures. Instead of simply framing them (that works too, but many people like wearable and useable art) try adding them to plain tote bags, or purses or add your photos instead of painting a t-shirt free hand.
If you look online you can get good deals on wholesale products such as the white t-shirts, totes or you can create your own "fat quarters" with your very own special photo printed right on the fabric that can be sold for quilting. If you use the bubblejet formula your ink will look as good as a photograph on the fabric.
You may even begin to see your photographs around town as you sell more and more of your work in a useable form. So, instead of framed prints, get creative and find other ways to get your photographs out there for people to enjoy. Happy crafting!
