Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) is not like the regular "glitter canvas" that you may be used to using from big box stores. Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) is full color glitter canvas with a very thin layer of vinyl (PVC) top. The thin layer conceals the glitter, does not flake, nor does it add extra bulk (it is still 0.6mm thick); therefore, it remains very pliable, light and is very easy to cut especially in those tight places. The beauty about this type of vinyl is that it retains the high sparkle, as it is not glitter mixed in vinyl rather vinyl over glitter. This creates a high sparkle, as the glitter is consistent throughout the sheet giving you a nice solid, rich color. This means you can use vinyl without having to sacrifice the sparkle! It has a woven canvas back, which is why MiKri World named it Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM). It is great for use in making hair bows, wands, hairband sliders, key fobs, bracelets, masks, appliques, pouches, ornaments, phone cases, belts, purses and purse embellishments just to name a few. You are only limited by your imagination as to where you can use this and what you can do with it.
This is NOT heat transfer vinyl and it is NOT marine vinyl. There is no film to peel off the top or backing to peel away as it does not contain adhesives. To use this vinyl you DO NOT need to use Heat and Bond Lite or any other adhesives. You can use sewable adhesive if you want to ensure it stays in place while you are stitching it, but we still advise that you put sewable adhesive outside (or inside) your stitch line.
It is anti-mildew and abrasion-resistant. It can be washed in cold water on gentle or hand washed and dried via air dry, cool dry or hang to dry. Our recommendation is to HAND WASH. This is a vinyl product and heat settings are NOT recommended. DO NOT use chemicals such as Oxy Clean, Shout etc. with this vinyl as they can cause a breakdown of the vinyl.
Many of our customers have washed and drier using the "regular" settings on their washer and dryer and have not had a single issue in doing so, but this is not our recommendation.
If using this vinyl on items that are not preshrunk, please note that the vinyl will not shrink with the material. This can cause the vinyl to bunch up and even pull away.
Needle use for this really does depend on what you are making with it. If you are doing an applique on a knit fabric you will get the best results using a ballpoint needle.
MiKri World LLC did test our Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) for lead and the test produced negative results. The test result is limited to the Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) that MiKri World LLC sells. MiKri World LLC prohibits the use of our lead testing results, in any form, by any other company that sells similar products.
I am seeing others using the words "Mirror Canvas" in regards to product they are selling. Please note that we established rights of ownership of the term "Mirror Canvas" based on use of the mark in commerce as established in August of 2014 by MiKri World. Due to Mikri World LLC creating the name for the product you will now see a "TM" following Mirror Canvas. Trademark on "Mirror Canvas" is pending.
Please note prior to ordering:
This product contains vinyl. It is not uncommon for vinyl to have an odor to it. If you find the odor is too strong, we recommend that you use Febreze on the backing, wipe down the front, or store it with a dryer sheet to help with the odor.
Sheets are 9 x 12 Inches, Rolls are 12 x 54 Inches and are hand cut. We try to be true to the 9"x12" size, but a sheet could be off just a tad.
Note colors may differ due to computer monitor settings and dye lot changes.
