I can not tell you how excited I am about this embossed sister brick 600 hat. For this hat design, I layered 3 specialty types of vinyl for this hat.
My base layer is the Siser brick 600, the layer over that is Siser Easyweed Stretch and I finished it with a border using Siser Flock Strip.
I actually made 2 of these hats, the second 1 I used Siser glow. But the Siser Stretch was hands down my favorite!
The Siser Stretch is the red 1 and the Siser Glow is white. I am going to.
What Is Siser Brick 600?
Siser Brick 600 is Siser’s thickest heat transfer vinyl. This is 1 of Siser’s many specialty materials and is 600 microns thick (which equates to 0.023622 inches). This flexible heat transfer vinyl is great for garment decorating. It was designed to use for smaller logos.
Siser brick will add a little extra dimension to you and your children’s clothing.
Siser brick works with any cutter and you can find the settings for Silhouette Cameo or other machines on this page. It is even safe for laser systems!
Can You Layer Siser Brick 600?
You can only layer this thicker material only if using the embossing method. The embossing method is exactly what I did here in this tutorial.
You will need to use the brick heat transfer vinyl as the bottom layer of the design. The thinnest materials (stretch works best) will go over the top of the thick flexible material causing an embossed look.
The matte finish of Siser brick looks great stand-alone on caps, and bags and are great for left chest logos.
What Is SIser Brick Used For?
For the most part, Siser brick is very similar to traditional HTV. The material is pretty easy to cut. I used the cardstock light setting and ran it through twice to be safe.
It is a cool peel, which means that you will allow the vinyl to cool before you peel the carrier sheet off. But you apply the design as normal.
How Do You Apply Brick Vinyl?
With Siser Brick you will use medium to firm pressure to press the design. You do need to preheat the garment for 2-3 seconds. After the preheat, apply the design to the material.
You will press for 10-15 seconds. If after it has cooled you remove the transfer sheer you notice areas of the design lift, then cover the design with kraft paper or some sort of non-stick cover sheet and re-press to make sure you have it secured.
You can find the full application instructions below.
How Do I Wash Garments With Siser Brick Vinyl?
You need to wait 24 hours before the first wash. Just to give the adhesive time to really adhere. After that wash with mild detergent and dry on a low dryer setting.
