A&E MID-MAY 2019 • 11 STEPS: 1 Contour cut around the artwork of transfer. 2 Position transfer 1/2 of an inch from top of Polar Camel and secure transfer with heat tape. 3 Tape a piece of scratch paper over the artwork transfer to protect wrap from ink. 4 Secure the transfer to the Polar Camel tumbler with silicone wrap. Start wrapping by stretching and rolling the silicone over top of itself, wrapping in a non-artwork area to prevent a line in your artwork. 5 Secure the silicone wrap with heat tape. 6 Place the tumbler in the convec- tion oven with recommended settings. 7 Using heat-resistant gloves, pull the product from the oven and remove scratch paper; unwrap with caution as it will be hot. 8 Set the tumbler in front of a fan or put it in water to help rapidly cool the tum- bler and stop the sublimation process. 9 When cool enough, remove the transfer paper. A&E SUPPLIES NEEDED: • Substrate (we are using a Polar Camel tumbler) • Sublimation transfer • Scratch paper • Silicone wrap • Convection oven • Heat-resistant gloves SETTINGS: • 405 F • 6:30 to 8:30 minutes dwell time • Pressure on wrap light to medium Step Four.
