The process of heat transferring the colors is accomplished when a hot iron turns the dyed sublimation ink to a gas which penetrates the receiving fabric. Once heated, this ink is permanent. Easily transfer onto fabric, canvas, wood or just about any surface where a hot iron can be used. Make permanent transfers for fabric painting, original art, applique, embroidery, labeling quilts and clothing, tole painting, needlework, punch needle and more. They work only on light or medium colored fabrics. The pens remain brighter colored on poly/cotton blends than just cotton. The pen has a gate valve that only opens with the pressure that's placed on it as you write, pushing the tip up and opening the valve, allowing the ink to flow down and saturate the tip. Keep the cap tightly on the pen when not in use to avoid drying out the tip.
