Okay, this question has been asked over and over. How do you decide what to use ink or paste on your project?
- Is permanent once you heat-set it.
- Will need to heat set the fabric projet with Cricut easy press (300 degrees for 30 seconds) or with medium heat iron (4 minutes on each side).
- Make sure you use parchment paper between your easy press or iron and the project.
- If you’re inking mug or plate; you can put them in a cold medium oven (like a toaster oven that you do not use with food in it) and heat it up to 300-350 for 30 minutes to set it.
- It is recommended that you wait for the ink to dry before putting it in the oven. Usually 24-48 hours.
- The lid is white with the word of INK on it
- Is removable with water
- Is not removable on WOOD. You will have to sand or paint to remove the stains from the paste
- Once it is heat set with a craft heat gun, it does not smudge or smear
- It can be layered with different colors as well
- You can even use glitter on top of the paste (when it is wet!)
- The lid is black with the word PASTE on it
- Pastes have ONE YEAR Shelf life UNOPENED
- Pastes have SIX MONTHS shelf life OPENED
- If pastes are thickened or hard, you can add a small amount of DISTILLED water to it and stir well.
- DO NOT FREEZE
- Clean the rim of the jar before the lid is closed on the jar to help it last longer
- Pastes do not stick to plastic very good so it is not recommended to work with plastic.
- If you are using ink on a plate or charger plate. PLEASE do not use it for food. It is not recommended to do that.
