I love quick and easy projects (goodness know I don’t do that kind nearly enough.)
This post is all about embracing your inner artist.
Painting on fabric is nothing new, in fact I have done it quite a few times and I am sure you can find thousands of pins with tips and tricks. The problem that comes up again and again is that the paint is stiff. Even with fabric paint (which is significantly less stiff) the paint still sits on the surface of your fabric.
But never fear, Decoart is here!
They just launched a brand new product called Ink Effects and it is completely different from any other fabric paint I have ever used.
The process is totally different too.
Start by painting your design on a piece of white printer paper. The thicker your paint the more vivid the color will be.
Let your painting dry for 45 minutes.
Once it is dry put it face down on your fabric and iron it on.
Ink effects works MUCH better with synthetic fabric like Polyester than it does on Cotton. The pigment is absorbed better so the color is deeper.
After you have ironed your design (the longer you apply heat the deeper the color) peel back your paper and enjoy!
I love how bright these little circles are in the sea of white.
