Cricut Infusible Ink Markers Tutorial: Make Pop Art Coasters

Cricut Infusible Ink Markers Tutorial: Make Pop Art Coasters

Coloring fans, this project is for you! Today we are going to use the Cricut Infusible Ink Markers with the Cricut Maker to create a Pop Art set of coasters.

Let's open a New Project in Cricut Design Space. Upload your single line design.

I am using this Butterfly Design from the Foil Quill Starter Bundle.

There are 81 designs & 3 fonts JUST for Sketch Pens, Infusible Ink Markers, Foil Quill, and more.

You don't want to miss this bundle! So much fun!

Resize the Butterfly Design to 6" wide (or your preferred size that fits onto 8.5" x 11" laser copy paper.)

Important tip: Laser Copy Paper is required for pressing with Infusible Ink Markers & Pens.

Using the Contour Tool, I hid some of the sections of the Butterfly Design.

You can leave the design as is or choose to use the Contour Tool.

Make sure the design is set to Draw and click Make It.

If your design has text, be sure to choose mirror!

Choose Laser Copy Paper as your material.

Place a piece of laser copy paper onto the Light Grip mat and load into your Cricut Maker.

Insert the Black Infusible Ink Marker into Clamp A.

Press Go!

Once the design is drawn, it's time for the fun part - coloring!

I chose to use bright colors to mimic Pop Art (think Andy Warhol!)

Just a note: the Infusible Ink Markers may look dull on the paper but will deepen and brighten once you press them.

Once you are done coloring, trim the design so you don't have the excess white paper.

Turn on your Cricut Easy Press Mini. Use the high setting (400º F).

Now place your Cricut Infusible Ink Coaster shiny side up on the Easy Press Heat Mat.

Lay your design, coloring side down onto the glossy side of the coaster.

Place a piece of butcher paper on top.

Press with the Cricut Easy Press Mini in sections.

Try not to drag the press or there will be blurred lines.

I did small sections, heating for 30 seconds each. I wanted a faded edge so I pressed less along the edges.

Try to keep consistent pressure and be sure to let it cool before removing the butcher paper and design.
