Dye Sublimation on 100% Cotton… Does using Polycrylic work???

Sublimating on 100% cotton IS possible… Some **acceptable** methods include using:
—Siser Easy Subli (8.5×11 https://amzn.to/3aX6t9c) (11×16.5 – https://amzn.to/31nzqI1)
—Subli-Cloth (https://amzn.to/2FXwQAt)
—Dyepress (https://amzn.to/3aRT5TA)

BUT… A less acceptable method you see floating around social media is using Minwax Polycrylic (https://amzn.to/3ldOAre). I don’t recommend using it to make stuff you’ll sell, BUT I still wanted to see if this cheap and easy mixture method would work!

Why wouldn’t I use this for shirt I sell? You don’t know what kind of skin sensitivities someone has and you cannot guarantee the results will last.

What are your thoughts about this process?

Some key things that I can’t live without in MY sublimation setup:
