New Ink Effects Image Transfer Paints

Create and personalise fabric articles and textile transfers (with your own individual designs) using INK Effects fabric transfer paints from DecoArt.  Watch this video to see how easy it is!  An easy-to-use "iron-fixing" fabric transfer paint.

This fabric paint is supple (i.e. it is not stff and will not break, crackle or split).  Simply paint your own freehand design on a normal, plain sheet of paper and allow the paint to dry for approximately 45 minutes.  Remember to mirror image text or designs.  Once dry, place the painted piece of paper face-down on the fabric.  Iron over design using a protective piece of paper.  Keep iron moving.  Peel off to reveal design.  Even pattern sheets or colouring book pages can be used. 

INK Effects can be painted, sponged or stencilled.  Sheets can be re-used.  Designs can be overlaid.  There are 12 intermixable colours in the range.  Colours work best on sythetic fabrics.  A basecoat spray is recommended for cotton blends.
