HappyMelt is a glue which can be applied to textiles using heat. E.g. you can use it to fuse a patch on a bag that can later be stitched.
When using the HappyPress:
- Temperature: 165 °C
- Time: 5 seconds
- Pressure: medium
- Peel off: cold
When using a flat iron:
A steady and solid surface is needed for printing. You might use a table covered with a towel to protect the wood from the heat. An ironing board is not suitable. You could however place a small board atop the ironing board.
Set your iron to (**).
Cover the design with HappyCover. If the design is smaller than your iron, firmly press with iron for 10 seconds without moving the iron. Should the design be larger than your iron, press individual areas for 10 seconds and continue to firmly iron in circles for 10 additional seconds. Pay special attention to the edges to make sure your design will stick to the garment permanently.
Tip: If your patch is particularly thick it might make more sense to turn your garment inside out and press from the left side to be "closer" the glue.
