I wasn't sure if this should go here or in iron ons, but it isn't a inkjet thing, so im cross posting.

Has anyone used these? I tried the other day and it didn't give the darkness I wanted, it was supposed to be black and it looked more grey. I ironed it for a while, and I think it was about as dark as it will go. It is old, I have had it laying around forever never used it but I don't know if that even matters.

Anyone?

i don't reccomend transfer pens to be the medium you have your final image in... they do fade over time and end up looking quite funky

what i (and i assume most other people, as well) use transfer pens for is to transfer the image to the fabric... and then go over the image with whatever medium you choose.

for example, sometimes i'll draw something and want it on a shirt or whatever. i'll whip out my transfer pen and do the whole process of transfering AND THEN go over it with fabric paint! that way you can control the colors you want and it just looks nicer!

hope this helps!

Thank you so much. I have had it for YEARS probably since high school, and I graduated in 2000. I must have bought it for something specific and never used it because I have no idea why I would have it. But really thank you, this does help a lot, I will have to try using it again and find something to use over it.
