These mini versions ofShiva Paintstiks are real oil paint in a solid stick form, and can be used to embellish almost any type of fabric, leather, paper, wood, even metal and plastic!
On most surfaces they are permanent when dry, and on fabric a little extra heat setting does the trick and holds up to gentle washing. Do not Dryclean. They open up great new opportunities for creating your own complex visual creations, and look fantastic as iridescent accents on already dyed cloth.
You can use them freehand, or with "rubbing plates" that allow you to create patterns easily and quickly. You can also use them with stencils, rubber stamps or masking. The book "Paintsticks on Fabric" gives lots of ideas and inspiration. Turn our copper Tjaps into rubbing plates with these for even more unique designs. Possibilities are endless.
The Shiva Mini Paintstik Sets are a great way to try these or build up your varied collection of beautiful colors. These predetermined color sets make choosing the right colors easy.
