As we saw in the last post about t-shirt transfers to fabric, the transparency transfer method yields a more delicately colored and transparent image. Here's how to do it:
1. Print out your image on the rough side of an inkjet transparency. Prepare the receiving cloth, ironing it flat if needed.
2. Apply a thin but thorough layer of polymer gloss medium to the fabric. Position the image and burnish it well. The fabric will probably be slippery, so hold your image down carefully.
3. Remove the transparency carefully, and top the image with matte medium to cut the shine if desired.

If you heat-seal this with an iron, will you be able to wear and wash?
For example, on a tshirt?
Also, if the shirt has some stretch to it, will the image crack like transfer paper?
Thanks very much
What brand of tshirt transfers do you recommend? I have always had mine fade and/or crack off.
I want to put our logo on some type of fabric, which will be large enough to also use a bit of filler so the logo will puff up a bit when sewn on the afghan. Suggestions for fabric that will sew easily to an afghan?
