Comment on How To Etch Glass At Home by Jessi Wohlwend https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/how-to-etch-glass-at-home/#comment-463393 Tue, 15 Jun 2021 04:22:12 +0000 https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/?p=12726#comment-463393 In reply to Jill Joseph.

The etching cream isn’t toxic after you’ve washed it away—certainly don’t ingest any, but after the time is up and you rinse the cream off the glass, it’s gone. Etching is much more permanent than vinyl because the etching cream actually “eats away” at the glass underneath, leaving a slightly rougher surface below. The designs are more subtle when etching because it’s just smooth, clear glass vs rougher, opaque glass. So if you want something bright or bold, vinyl might be a better choice. But if you want something permanent that can stand up to the dishwasher, etching is definitely better!

Comment on What Is A Cricut Machine & What Can I Do With It? by Jessi Wohlwend https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/what-is-cricut-machine/#comment-463392 Tue, 15 Jun 2021 04:18:38 +0000 https://www.practicallyfunctional.com?p=25463&preview=true&preview_id=25463#comment-463392 In reply to Glenda.

Yep, sublimation ink is the generic name for ink that bonds to materials when heated, so Infusible Ink is just Cricut’s specific brand of sublimation ink.

Comment on How To Harvest Chamomile & Chamomile Tea Recipe by Jessi Wohlwend https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/harvest-chamomile-tea-recipe/#comment-463391 Tue, 15 Jun 2021 04:17:10 +0000 https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/?p=14377#comment-463391 In reply to Omar.

Yep, you definitely can! For fresh chamomile tea you’ll need more flowers than with the dried chamomile—I’d say you want about 3-4 tablespoons of flowers. (They shrink as they dry, so it’s probably the same number of flowers, they just take up more room before they’re dried.)

You can harvest them the same way, making sure just to get the heads of the flowers (the stems are icky in tea), and then use them right away, or within a few hours, so they don’t wilt and lose their potency.

I used almost three whole cans to do the entire set (six chairs and one table).

Oh no, Mary Anne, I’m so sorry I didn’t see this until now! Your comment got lost in the shuffle. 🙁 I hope you figured something out, and if you still would like help so you can do it for next time, let me know! You can always email me at jessi@practicallyfunctional.com.

Comment on Everything You Need To Know About Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets by Jessi Wohlwend https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/how-to-use-cricut-infusible-ink-transfer-sheets/#comment-463388 Tue, 15 Jun 2021 04:09:27 +0000 https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/?p=44456#comment-463388 In reply to DEBORAH PATRICK.

Oof, I totally hear you! I don’t own the mug press yet, so I can’t help with that part…sorry! But yes, the Infusible Ink sheets are also called Infusible Ink transfer sheets. It can definitely be confusing, because there is also “transfer tape” or “transfer paper” that helps you transfer cut out adhesive vinyl designs to your project, and sometimes people call the plastic backing on iron-on a “transfer sheet” as well. But in the case of Infusible Ink, transfer sheets just means the pre-printed sheets as opposed to the pens or markers containing Infusible Ink.

For the back of the sheet, you can kinda see the back in this image: https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/how-to-weed-cricut-infusible-ink-transfer-sheets-2048×1365.jpg The back has a square grid pattern to help you cut straight lines, and the front is the muted color or design of the sheet itself. You can follow the step-by-step instructions in this post (https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/how-to-use-cricut-infusible-ink-transfer-sheets/#1–cricut-infusible-ink-pens-amp-markers-faqs-) at least through Step 3. Obviously you’ll want to use your own image or design, but that will at least help you get your design cut out of your transfer sheets. Then for the applying heat step, I’m sorry I can’t be of more help but I haven’t used the mug press yet so I don’t really know how it works…
