Jacquard Textile Colors are a medium consistency fabric paint that delivers great value for your money. These colors leave your fabric as soft as possible for a paint of this medium consistency. The color is intense and semi-opaque. This product is absolutely colorfast on natural or synthetic fabrics when heat-set by ironing according to the manufacturer's directions.
Mixing Colors: Right out of the bottle Jacquard Textile Colors provide you with 32 gorgeous colors - plenty for many projects. But if you need more you can easily mix the colors to make any color you desire. The Fluorescent colors do glow under a blacklight for those special effects!
Creating Pastels: You can mix #123 White into any other color to create pastels. Try mixing in a little at first and then adding more if you want to increase the effect.
Increasing Transparency: You can increase the transparency of any color by adding #100 Colorless Extender to it. The more you add the more transparent the color will be.
Increasing Transparency & Flowability: You can increase both transparency and flowability by adding up to 25% water. This will give you more of a watercolor effect.
They also mix beautifully with Dye-Na-Flow and Lumiere & Neopaque.
Jacquard Textile Colors are a great medium for Pearl Ex Powders - make your own metallics!
Application: Jacquard Textile Colors can be applied with brushes, stamp pads, squirt bottles, and airbrushes. For airbrushing thin with water up to 25%.
Fixing: After drying, Jacquard Textile Colors must be set with heat or a fixative. There are several ways to do it:
Ironing: This is the best method. Use a dry iron and iron on the reverse side (for thinner fabrics) on the appropriate setting for the fabric. For thicker fabrics like fleece, iron on the painted side, using parchment paper or a thin press cloth over it.
Fixative: Mix in 1-3% (1/2 - 1 1/2 tsp per 8 oz Paint) of our No Heat Fixative (see below) in with the paint you are going to use right before you use it. Then let the project dry and cure for 4-6 days, and it will be washable. This method actually results in the paint being even softer than ironing.
Dryer: Have the dryer on as hot a temperature as the fabric will take for about 35 to 45 minutes. This often doesn't work as well as the methods above if your dryer doesn't get hot enough. Dryers do vary.
Cleanup: Promptly clean all tools with warm water.

Jacquard Textile FAQ

Question:

What is the difference between Dye-Na-Flow, Textile Colors, and Lumiere & Neopaque?

Answer:

All three are waterbased acrylic paints and they all work together very well on all natural fabrics and most synthetics. However, each one has its own unique characteristics:
Dye-Na-Flow is a very thin and fluid textile paint that has the consistency of water. It can be used for water color like washes and silk painting techniques including Serti. It can also be sprayed on and used for non-toxic and Faux Tie Dye or Batik techniques.
Textile Colors are medium bodied semi-opaque paints ideal for fabric painting with a brush detailed designs, can also be used for stenciling, block printing and many other techniques.
Lumiere & Neopaque are lighter bodied than the Textile Paints, and are suitable for various surfaces such as leather, paper, & fabric. Still a nice consistency for handpainting. They are both heavily pigmented and very opaque and excellent for covering dark materials. The Lumiere line is a gorgeous assortment of metallics & pearlescents.

Question:

Can I mix Jacquard Textile Colors with Dye-Na-Flow and Lumiere & Neopaque?

Answer:

Absolutely, all are acrylic paints and they work very well together. Keep in mind that the consistencies of each paint are different, so your resulting colors may be thicker or thinner.

Question:

How do I use Jacquard Textile Colors for stamping?

Answer:

You can use it straight from the bottle. Try applying it to the stamp with a sponge brush or make up sponge, or a brayer. Better for block like stamps. Must be thinned to use with finer detailed rubber stamps.

Question:

Can I thin the Jacquard Textile Colors for airbrushing?

Answer:

Absolutely. It can be diluted with water by up to 25% to pass through an airbrush.

Question:

I've followed all the directions for heat setting, but my paints are washing off. What did I do wrong?

Answer:

Make sure that you are using a dry iron at the correct temperature setting for the fabric. If you don't heat set at a high enough temperature for a long enough time, the paint may not be thoroughly set. Sometimes if you are using a top loading washing machine, it can abrade the paint from the fabric. Pre-washing fabrics before doing any surface treatments to remove any factory sizings may also help. Don't paint more layers of paint on top of each other, because paint has more trouble sticking to a slick already painted surface than the fabric surface.

Question:

Are Dynaflow, Jacquard Textile Colors, and Lumiere/Neopaque dry cleanable?

Answer:

Yes. Once properly heat set, these paints are dry cleanable.

Question:

When do I use the Colorless Extender?

Answer:

Colorless Extender is the medium-bodied clear acrylic base for the Textile Colors. Mix it into any other Textile Color to create more transparency without changing the consistency of the paint.
For a transparent metallic shimmer, try adding some Pearl-Ex Powdered Pigments to the extender for use on fabric. Heat set as usual.

Question:

What are the ways to heat-set textile paints?

Answer:

Heat setting is necessary with most Fabric Paints to lock the color into the fibers so it's washable. (Paint must be thoroughly dry!) There are a few different methods.
Ironing is a major home option. Preheat the iron at the maximum temperature safe for the fabric. Most paints say to iron each spot for 2-3 minutes. Using Aluminum foil can cut back on this time. Place aluminum foil on the ironing board with the shiny side up. Put the fabric over that with the painted face down. Place another sheet of foil on top, shiny side down. Each square foot must be pressed for 15-25 seconds keeping the iron moving so as to not scorch the fabric. (Irons are not created exal! Inexpensive light weight irons sometimes don't get hot enough).
A commercial dryer that reaches 250° minimum can be used for 30-45 minutes depending on the fabric and fabric paint used. The dryer must be preheated and please note that home clothing dryers usually don't get hot enough.
Another method is using a commercial conveyor type oven: 350° for 3 minutes, 2 passes if necessary. A home oven can be safely used (except for accessories that have plastic inserts!), 250° for 25 min. Coil the fabric in a loose roll and lay it on some paper, not allowing the fabric to touch the side or rack of the oven. All temperatures and amounts of times are dependent on the fabric, fabric paint, amount of coverage and equipment used. TEST!
To eliminate heat setting, try Versatex's No Heat Fixative! Works with most brands of fabric paints. If you do a lot of fabric painting, this could change your life!

Really good product. I used it to spray my dining and kitchen chairs that was faded due to time. Combined with the no heat fixative it's like I have brand new chairs. I over estimated and should have bought 2 quarts instead of a gallon for 10 chairs. I will definitely order another color to do my living room sofa.

Would these be good for painting shirts or would dyes be better?

I used this paint on a faded 7 year old nylon outside flag (on the nylon letters only) with the versatex fixative in it and it really looks good. It is holding up to the wet weather. Make sure the area you paint is free of dirt and any fabric sizing. (follow directions) My flag has been through two rainy days. So far it's held up. Getting ready to do another advertising flag.
