Step 6

When you iron the image place the garment on a hard surface, like a table top protected with a tea towel and start to iron over the silicon paper. You need to press as hard as you can and slowly move over each section of the design, ironing for up to 45 seconds on each section before you move to the next. This is important so the image is stuck well enough so it will not come off when you wash the garment.
