Iron-on Inkjet Transfers onto Panels?

Thinking about stylizing my panels with some iron-on inkjet artwork, like a faux window scene or something just to brighten up the bunker-like vibe in the studio. Are these things safe to use an iron on and do you think it would reduce their absorption?

Anything that closes up the holes in the fabric will reduce the effectiveness of your panel.

Yes as Eric said anything that clogs up the fiber is going to change how it absorbs. If you do it yourself think about using Die Sub printing. See the thread Glenn's Custom Panels Glenn's custom panels which I explain this a little more.

Ahh...but what about the "limp-mass (that's what she said) membrane" effect?

I guess you could but I would not put it in any early reflection area.

Very true. Plus it's cool to say that it's a complicated printing process over some iron-on transfers. It gave me the idea though... why not upholster in white and let a good local artist loose with some markers or watercolor paint?

Now, if I can just get this panel to run through my inkjet printer without jamming... :p

The paint will fill in between the fibers. Some problem as using iron-on.

Would be cool!!!!!!! You could buy the printing press that was used for my custom panels. Got a extra $800,000.00 sitting around?

Oil paint would, but what about good watercolor paint, or marker, since it's more of a dye?

I've actually seen that done a few times...watercolor specifically. It was fine, but it was a custom job done by a local artist. It would have been very, very expensive if the guy had had to pay for it.

As Frank said I guess that would work.
