A modern update on a classic.  Wink

http://tinypic.com/amcy0

This is the original by Magritte:



This is the third iron-on I have done and I do not like how it came out.  I think I used a cheaper kind of paper.  You can see how it is peeling in the upper left corner of the graphic.  What kind of paper do you all use and recommend?
Also, is there a way to make the final image more matte and less shiny?

Comments welcome!

Oh man. That is an awesome design.  I can see why you'd want a higher quality transfer.  Unfortunately, I don't know of any to recommend, just wanted to tell you your shirt's great.

Years ago before they had t-shirt transfers for dark fabric, you had to put everything on a white or light colored tee. These transfers did not turn out very leathery or shiny- they were totally matte. I notice they still sell those but haven't bought them recently. If you had the ones for dark fabric, try the other ones.

Also, someone mentioned in another thread that you should keep the tissue paper used in the transfer process because you can touch up peeling corners with your iron, even after washing.

Good luck. Smiley

I was fortunate to see a Magritte exhibit last year.  Cool
Unfortunately, the t-shirt is not showing for me.  Undecided
I don't have any transfers to recommend as I've only ever tried 1 brand.
