I love my Cricut Maker, and I am always wowed by all of the fabulous products that are available, and their new Infusible Ink line is no exception.
Infusible Ink Coasters Supplies
With so many patterns, colors and blanks to choose from, I had a hard time deciding which designs to use.
I finally decided on the Wildflower pattern and the ceramic coaster blanks.
We never seem to have enough coasters around this place.
All of the infusible Ink products will eventually be available on the Cricut site, but for now, you’ll need to head to Michael’s craft store to get them.
You’ll also need:
- Cricut cutting machine
- EasyPress 2 and coordinating EasyPress2 Mat
- White cardstock
- White butcher paper (included with the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets)
- Cricut Access Standard or higher
- Flower designs
Making Infusible Ink Coasters
Once you’ve cut out the designs from the infusible ink transfer sheets according to your Cricut machine prompts, carefully weed the flower designs.
Next, place the cardstock on top of your EasyPress mat (this will protect your EasyPress Mat from any infusible ink that may bleed through).
Turn on your EasyPress2 and set it to 400º and 240 seconds (4 minutes).
Then, prep your coaster by wiping away any lint or debris using a lint-free cloth.
Secure the infusible ink design to the smooth side of the coaster, then, carefully turn it upside down onto the cardstock.
Place a sheet of butcher paper on top of the coaster (this will protect your EasyPress2 from any infusible ink that may bleed through).
Carefully set the EasyPress2 on top of the coaster, being careful not to move it around. You may hold it in place, but you do not want it to move around.
Once the time is up, lift the EasyPress2 straight up and off of your coaster, setting it back in its base.
Tip: The coaster will be extremely hot, do not touch for at least 10-15 minutes
Once the coaster has cooled, carefully remove the infusible ink transfer sheet.
You’ll notice that your design colors are deeper and more vibrant.
Repeat the process until you have transferred all four infusible ink designs to all four of the coasters.
I love how they are so smooth. The ink has become a part of the coaster and will not fade, bleed or lift.
This stuff is absolutely amazing! In fact, you can use it immediately, no waiting for it to cure!
This is just the beginning of my infusible ink fun. I’ve got all kinds of projects planned, starting with some Disney designs.
