Hello!
I'm new here-well not really, i have been reading on craftster a lot- it's my first post. I was wondering if any of you tried using iron-ons on other things than just fabrics? I've been experimenting on leather and vinyl and i think it gives a nice vintage look. What are your experiences with other materials ?

Vinyl Bag

Leather Bag

I like the look!  How do you 'iron' onto leather?  Doesn't the heat cause problems with leather?

Thank you!
The leather bag wasn't so easy, the iron-on kind of melted into it in some areas, and i had to make sure my iron wouldn't mess up the rest of the leather. I also used "iron paper", the kind you use for ironing delicate fabrics.

Do you have to seal the images somehow to keep the ink stable when wet or when it has been rubbed?

I used clear wood varnish for the vinyl bag, because i also painted it green with acrylic paint. The bag was originally white. I "tested" both bags in rainy weather and they were fine, nothing came off Smiley

Thank you  Wink
I'd love to see everyone's experiments? Has anyone else tried iron-ons on other materials?
