Fabric Paints 

Dharma Trading Co. has fabric paints for every fabric type and technique! Our fabric paints all work on almost all untreated fabrics, also some work on wood, leather, paper and other surfaces. It is the different consistencies (thick, thin or in-between) that make each better for certain techniques. Some fabric paints have more pigment in the formula and cost a little more. Some are opaque and cover dark fabrics and some are transparent. Some include metallic, pearlescent or fluorescent colors. Whatever you need, we have it! **Unsure which is the right paint for you? Our Dye/Paint Selection Guide can help!
