Allow to dry for 48 hours, then heat set with an iron to prevent colour fading when washed.
1. When creating fabric art, a good tip is to draw a design on fabric lightly with an HB pencil, then use the brush to apply the paint to the desired areas. When you wash the fabric after heat-setting, the pencil marks will wash away leaving your design behind. If you are painting a t-shirt, we recommend that you place a thick piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt to ensure that the paint doesn't seep through to the back. Stretching the t-shirt tautly over the cardboard with pegs will also help prevent the fabric from moving while you create your art!
2. Derivan Fabric Art Paint washes up in the water before it is heat set, but has excellent rub resistance and lightfastness once heat set. Heat fixing times and temperatures vary, however, a guide is as follows:
Cotton, calico, linen, rayon - 4-5 mins at 140ºC - 180º
Synthetics, nylon, polyester, tetron, Acrylic - 5-8 mins at 115ºC - 130ºC
3. Wash all utensils, brushes and hands with soap and water.
4. Test temperature and fixing time before the important project.
