Adhesive Vinyl on Acrylic Shapes

Have you worked with acrylic shapes? Have you applied adhesive vinyl as carefully as you could and still had bubbles? I’m going to show you how to use the wet method so you can tell those bubbles to pop off! In this acrylic Christmas ornament tutorial, you will see just how easy it is to apply vinyl using the wet method!

Tips and Tricks that work for me

Layering vinyl is much easier to do if you do it off of your acrylic piece. You will see in the video how I layer the different colors of vinyl on a piece of backing from the vinyl. You have more control of your pieces and less chance your vinyl will stick to something you don’t want it to stick to!

Another thing that works for me is learning which setting works best with your machine. I use a Cricut Explore Air 2, and have heard people say they use the washi setting when they cut small pieces of vinyl. I like the wax paper setting and extra “more” pressure. Remember that all machines have limitations. You can’t expect your cutting machine to cut thin tiny strips with no issues. That’s why when you pick a font to use with keychains, or anything small, you want to use a thicker font. Not only will it be easier for your machine to cut, but the vinyl will also adhere to your surface better. Remember, the vinyl has adhesive on the back, so the thinner you cut it, the less area you leave with adhesive on it to stick to your project.
