What You’ll Need To Layer Vinyl

Here are some of the things that you will need to layer vinyl for this craft and others.

How many layers of vinyl can you layer?

I have layered as many as 5-6 layers on 1 project, the thing to keep in mind is that your design gets thicker with each layer. Also, some types of vinyl are thicker to it may take fewer layers to get to where its no longer attractive.

Can you layer vinyl on top of glitter vinyl?

Glitter has grains, which make it hard to layer on top of it, however, you can layer glitter vinyl over top of the regular adhesive.

I love a good and cheap project and this one will cost you less than $3 to make each 1! Yup, these are dollar tree mugs, and I just removed the words that were on the front and made it my own.

Layering vinyl is pretty easy, people tend to overthink it. I have made it extra easy in my Free Starbucks Inspired Disney Maleficent SVG, I made sure it has registration marks so you can easily overlap the layers.

Instructions

  1. Gather all of your supplies
  2. Apply the acetone to your paper towel or cotton and remove the words from the cup using a circular motion
  3. In your cutting program resize the images to 4 inches and cut
  4. Remove from the mat and weed out the voided areas
  5. It should look like these when you are done
  6. Cut a piece of transfer paper just large enough to cover your design
  7. Grab 1 layer of the design
  8. Place it over your design how to layer vinyl using transfer sheet
  9. Use your scraper to remove the air between the design and the transfer paper how to layer vinyl using a squeegie
  10. Next, grab the other piece of your design line up the registration marks between the 2 layers how to layer vinyl using registration marks
  11. Repeat step 8
  12. Your vinyl is now layered the way it should look on your cup layered vinyl with registration marks
  13. Remove the paper backing by gently peeling it away peeling adhesive vinyl from paper backing
  14. Place the design onto your cup, I like to secure the middle then 1 side at a time placing layered vinyl on a cup
  15. Again use the scraper to transfer the vinyl from the transfer sheet onto the cup smoothing on adhesive vinyl
  16. Hand wash only finished layered vinyl cup
Can you layer vinyl on top of vinyl?

You will place the second layer on vinyl right on top of the first layer of vinyl. Take your time because once it is down, it is almost impossible to pull up and then not only will your top layer be ruined but also your bottom.

How many layers of vinyl can you layer?

For best results, keep your design to four or fewer layers. With each applied layer, the design becomes thicker and stiffer and may not appear as desired. If possible, allow the liner area of inner and top layers to be large enough to cover the bottom layer.
