The Undead & Infusible Ink
Have you tried Cricut’s Infusible Ink yet? You’re in for a real treat if you don’t know about it yet. Infusible Ink is completely different from vinyl in that it’s peel and crack proof. Absolutely perfect for the wear and tear of baby onesies and coasters! There are specific steps that need to be taken to apply the Infusible Ink correctly though. Don’t worry, I’ve got your back with tons of process pics below!
Applying Infusible Ink
When working with Infusible Ink, it’s pretty essential that you have an Easypress 2. The plate heats evenly all the way up to 400° so you’re sure to have perfect results every time. In addition to the Easypress 2, you’re going to need some butcher paper, cardstock, and a lint roller. You’ll see why below!
For the zombie onesies I used:
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Zombie Onesies File in Design Space
- Cricut Infusible Ink Baby Bodysuit
- Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets (Cherry & Black)
Once the transfer sheets have been cut, carefully weed out the excess pieces. Don’t worry that the colors look really muted. They’re going to be drastically different after the heat is applied!
Place a piece of heavy cardstock into the onesie and use the lint roller to completely remove any debris.
Place a sheet of butcher paper over the fabric and set EasyPress 2 to 385° to preheat the fabric for 15 seconds. Once preheated, add the cut design and butcher paper back on top of fabric and heat again for 40 seconds with light pressure. Once time is up, carefully remove EasyPress and allow to cool until warm to the touch.
Peel off protective backing while cutouts are still warm. I still love revealing the final look! It’s amazing how bright the colors get!
Zombies Love Brains Coasters
Using Infusible Ink on coasters is just as easy and the results are just as amazing! Again, you’re going to want to make sure to protect your surfaces with cardstock and butcher paper. Use the lint roller to get rid of any possible debris.
For the zombie coasters I used:
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Infusible Ink Square Coasters
- Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets (Cherry & Black)
- Zombie Coasters File in Design Space
Place a sheet of cardstock over the heating pad to protect. Put the coaster in the center (right side up) and position the cut Infusible Ink transfer design.
Position another sheet of cardstock over the coaster. Set the EasyPress 2 to 400°. Once fully heated, apply to coaster with no pressure for 60 seconds. When done, remove press and cardstock and allow coaster to cool completely before revealing your zombie masterpiece!
Hope you enjoy making some of these Zombie Onesies & Coasters with Infusible Ink. They would be the perfect Halloween baby shower or housewarming gift! Let me know if you have any questions about working with Infusible Ink. It’s so much fun to work with!
