Weeding this 3d vinyl was super easy. It reminded me of 1 of my favorite easy to weed vinyl brands.
The history of puff vinyl is unknown. But I am an 80s baby and I swear I remember seeing graphic shirts in the 90s with designs that were raised from the fabric.
This puff 3D vinyl is a specialty vinyl that with heat and the right amount of pressure it expands and leaves you with an amazingly unique design with a matte finish that raises up off of the vinyl.
Wala Kut Puff vinyl htv is the first 3D vinyl that I have used. Flock vinyl is also 3 dimensional. However, if you are looking for a real pop then this specialty material is the way to go!
How Long Do You Press Puff Vinyl?
With the Cricut EasyPress, the temperature is actually the same. And you still press it for 10 seconds but you need extremely heavy pressure.
What I did was place a towel down. My mat was a little too puffy to get the right amount of pressure. I placed the towel and situated my shirt. Then I aligned the vinyl and placed the press on top of the puff vinyl, and put all of my body weight on it for 10 seconds.
This was after a ton of testing and failing and a little help from some friends of mine. I was so excited when I got it right, I mean the results are beautiful as you can see!
