Introduction to Epoxy Rhinestone Mesh:
Iron-On epoxy rhinestone mesh is a revolutionary crafting material that combines the brilliance of rhinestones with the convenience of a mesh backing. The mesh is embedded with dazzling rhinestones that catch the light and create an eye-catching shimmer. It comes in various colors, sizes, and designs, allowing you to find the perfect match for your creative vision. Compared to the regular rhinestone mesh we sell, this epoxy mesh will bring more bling to your crafting projects as it adds much more texture and shine to your design.
Step-by-Step Guide to Applying Epoxy Rhinestone Mesh:
To ensure your epoxy rhinestone mesh projects turn out flawlessly, follow these essential steps:
1. Prepare the Mesh:
Before you start, make sure to first remove the clear film on the back of the mesh. This will expose the iron-on adhesive side, which will adhere to your garment during the application process once the mesh is heat pressed.
2. Position and Stabilize:
Place your epoxy mesh on the desired area of your garment and secure it in place with thermal tape. The thermal tape will hold the mesh in position while you apply heat to activate the adhesive.
3. Heat Press the Back Side:
With your garment and mesh in position, set your heat press to 330 Fahrenheit (165°C). Press the back side of the shirt first! (where the mesh is located) for approximately 15 seconds. The heat will activate the adhesive, ensuring a strong bond with your fabric.
4. Flip and Press the Front Side:
Gently turn your garment over to reveal the front side. Place a teflon sheet over the mesh to protect the rhinestones and your garment. Apply medium pressure and heat press the front side for 25 seconds at 330 Fahrenheit (165°C). This ensures that the rhinestones are securely attached to your garment.
5. Remove the Teflon Sheet and Tape:
Once the pressing process is complete, carefully remove the teflon sheet and thermal tape to reveal your dazzling rhinestone design.
Scissor-Friendly Mesh for Easy Customization:
One of the fantastic advantages of epoxy rhinestone mesh is that it's incredibly scissor-friendly. Here's why:
- Drawing and Cutting Borders:
Customers can draw out their desired design on wax paper. Once the design is sketched, simply place the wax paper on the back side of the mesh and cut along the lines with scissors. This makes it easy to achieve custom shapes and intricate designs. The mesh is very scissor-friendly, so this process is smooth and easy to execute!
However, it's essential to avoid using cutting machines like Cricut or Silhouette, as they may damage the blades and result in uneven cuts.
Epoxy rhinestone mesh provides endless possibilities for creating stunning designs on clothing, accessories, and even home decor items. Its ease of use and versatility make it an excellent choice for both crafting enthusiasts and seasoned designers.
So, let your creativity run wild and add some bling to your life with epoxy rhinestone mesh. Transform your wardrobe and accessories into dazzling masterpieces that will turn heads wherever you go! Happy crafting!
