Infusible Ink Cricut Gray Shirt

I’m on an Infusible Ink roll! And I was really curious how Infusible Ink would work on a Cricut gray shirt.  

On the white shirts, the colors transfer beautifully and I wanted to see if the colors would show up as good on the gray. For some good advice, check this post on beginner tips for Infusible Ink

I picked one of the ombre infusible ink sheets and cut a mountain design. With the v-neck design of the shirt I decided to put the image off to the side. Just a reminder that shirt designs don’t always have to go front and center!

For Infusible Ink to work correctly, the fabric must have a high percentage of polyester. The Cricut brand shirts have been tested to give vibrant color retention.
