This has been one of the most informative videos I have seen on mug sublimation. Thank you for taking the time to provide value added content to help on the journey. I just so happened to have a counter top Nuwave Bravo convection oven I use to use when I was renting. I now own a house and the oven has been sitting in garage for some time. I may put it to good use now! That oven did an amazing job in cooking my food. After a good cleaning, I hope it bakes my projects just as well. I realize once I use it for sublimation, I will not be able to go back to cooking in it again either. I am definitely a fan!
