Derivan FABRIC PAINT 

Buy Fabric Paint 

This water-based, non-toxic fabric paint is available in 13 colours and can be used safely in the classroom or home to hand paint t-shirts or other fabrics.

How to use Fabric paint

Our fabric paint is simple to apply. After painting a design, wait 48 hours, then iron the colour to ensure it stays colourfast after washing. You may combine a variety of colours to create different designs.

The range consists of three fluorescent colours that become luminous under UV light and look great  If you prefer to draw than paint, you may use the FabricMarkers to create hand-drawn designs. With its chisel and bullet ends, this marker is highly versatile. You may use the chisel tip to draw broad, flat lines or the bullet tip to draw shorter, consistent lines. Thanks to the transparent caps, you can see the colour no matter which ends you look at.

HOW TO HEAT SET FABRIC PAINTS


Heat is required in order for fabric paints to become wash proof. Any form of heat may be used for this purpose. Ovens or heat tunnels may be used, but the most common form of heat fixing is the use of a household iron. Here are some things to remember:


Make sure that your design is completely dry before it is heat fixed. Using an iron, apply heat evenly and continuously over the image for the required time. Do not burn or scorch the image or garment by keeping the iron in motion at all times. Remove the iron. If the garment becomes too hot you must.


Be careful when ironing the image; do not iron directly on it. Cover the image with a tea towel or other piece of cotton fabric. The iron should not be in direct contact with the image. The following times and temperatures are given as a rough estimate only. The accuracy of the settings in the device being used may result in different heat fixing times and temperatures.


 Cotton, calico, linen, rayon 4-5mins at 140°C -180°C

 Synthetics, nylon, polyester, tetron, acrylic 5-8mins at 115°C -130°C

It is imperative to keep in mind that important projects are always worth testing. Tests should be conducted on the material to determine the temperature and time required for heat fixing.

 



 
 

CREATING YOUR FABRIC PAINT DESIGN TIPS

When creating a fabric art, a good tip is to draw a design on fabric lightly with a 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!
