This is one of the most versatile fabric paints we carry. It also has the softest hand on fabric of any opaque or metallic paints we have tried. The thinner Transparent is even softer and can be used on the finest fabrics.
Transparent Setacolor is the paint of choice for Heliographic fabric art - yes,
SUN ART. Lay your fabric down outside and sponge on diluted Transparent
Setacolor in whatever color patterns you like. Then lay feathers, lace,
netting, leaves, precut cardboard, flowers or anything on the fabric and let
the sun do the rest. The objects you put on the fabric will leave their
impressions. Check out our Sun Painting Start Page
for details on sun painting.
Setacolor can also be used as silk screening silk when thickened with 2% to 5%
Drying: Air dry for 1 hour.
Fixing (two options):
With an iron (cotton position), for 5 minutes, on the reverse side of the
fabric; in the oven, for 5 minutes at 300°F (stabilized temperature).
Caring: After fixing, the colors resist
machine washing at 100° F and dry cleaning.
