Handy Hints:
Sample test fabric to ensure suitability - most fabrics require laundering to remove sizing. When mixed with clear medium depth of colour can be reduced without affecting the performance. The addition of water should be done sparingly as this will affect fastness properties.

Allow colours to dry overnight. Dryer: Place in dryer on a hot setting for 45 minutes (large item). Allow to age for 48 hours, then repeat the process. Iron: Place fabric paint side up between clean papers (no printed papers) iron on a hot setting, constantly moving to prevent burning for a minimum of 4 minutes (small T-shirt).
