Paints For Cotton, Rayon, Hemp, most fabrics

All of our Fabric Paints can be used On Cotton, Rayon, Hemp, Linen, or any other cellulose fiber, as well as most other fabrics as well. They basically differ in consistency and opacity as well as color choices. Most, but not all, have to be heat set according to direction, or used with a special fixative, to avoid fading or rubbing off. Consistency determines use to a point, and in general, the thinner the paint, the less feel or "hand" it leaves on the fabric. This is not always true, however, as Versatex Printing ink when screened leaves almost no hand. The more transparent paints leave less hand and opaque or metallics have a little more hand. Opaque paints have more pigment so they cover over underlying colors better.

Pros: Paint, Gel Stain, Glaze in one, Jasmine scented, eye popping Colors are very opaque, provide good coverage. Can be diluted with water. Non-toxic.

Cons: Fabrics that are to be washed need to be sealed according to special instructions, only 14 colors, strong scent if you are sensitive to fragrances.
