Learn how to sublimate on cotton and dark colors using different materials for fantastic results! Sublimation creates beautiful designs, but the high polyester content it requires can limit your project options. What if you want to decorate an item with natural fibers? I definitely prefer cotton shirts over a polyester shirt! Well I’ll teach you how to sublimate on cotton! We’ll look at several different ways to use my free t-shirt designs (you can also use the other options in my resource library!) and explore the pros and cons of each cotton sublimation project. Some of the techniques have special results to make your work really glow! I’ll also show you how each technique fares once its washed and dried.
