Folk Art > Paints > Matisse Mediums : MM13 Fabric Fixative

 

MM13 Fabric Fixative
Price: $15.50
Description: A great idea for the all-round artist. A way in which, if you feel like painting on fabric and making it last, you need not buy a whole range of fabric paints. MM13 Fabric Fixative mixed with Matisse Colours, preferably Flow Formula, will become permanent on T-shirts or most other garments after heat fixing.

Mix equal parts of Fabric Fixative and Matisse Flow Formula Acrylic, then paint and let dry before you heat-set with an iron to become wash-fast.

Heat-set by ironing on the reverse side of the painted area or put a tea towel over the painted area and heat-set with an iron. Do not allow the iron to make contact with the paint. Some synthetic fabrics are non-absorbent and thus not suited for paint application. It is possible to thin the paint with water and achieve stain effects or delicate watercolour brushouts. Test your fabric choice beforehand.

All prices are in Australian dollars.
