ALL ABOUT OUR MAGICAL 3D INK
I remember when I was small I had a sweater with little bears in bumper cars on them and they were soft, puffy and magically in 3D. It was my favorite sweater. Who would have knew that 30+ years later I would have my very own eco screen print company with that same ink! This ink is pure magic and amaaaazing. Let me tell you all about it.
HOW TO 3D PRINT IN 4 EASY AND FUN STEPS
Yep, all the magic starts with easy screen printing right? The 3D-ink prints just like our other inks. One thing to think about is the thicker the ink on the fabric the more your print will rise up. I like to ‘swoosh’ the squeegee one or two times more than with regular ink and press not as hard the last go.
For a full 3D effect later on make sure the print is totally dry, wait for at least 24 hours befor adding the magic.
The print will rise with heat, most effective is steam. Use lots of steam and don’t press. Preferably steam iron the back of the print. If that is not possible you can also hoover the iron over the print while steaming.
Enjoy the magic and dance away!
A COUPLE OF ‘GOOD TO KNOWS’
CARE: Steaming the print also sets the ink. Steam it for a minute or so and your print will be nice and puffy and set at the same time.
COLOR: The print will turn out lighter after puffing. So the red will turn into more of a pinkish red, The blue in a lighter blue, the black will be a very dark grey after puffing, etc.
DRY: If are using a hairdryer to dry while printing only use the COLD setting of your hairdryer.
MIX: You can mix the 3D inks just like you can mix any of our colors, please do note that the colors turn out lighter after steaming them.
