Shiva PaintStiks Instructions

Customer Service & Information Page

"How-To" for Fabrics:

If using commercial fabrics or clothing, prewash and press prior to application. When using your own hand-dyes it is best to use the paintstiks as a final layer. If you do over-dye, the soda ash breaks down the paint and it washes off. It also helps to tape or pin down the fabric to give better control when applying the paintstik.

There is a thin skin that seals the surface of the paint that has to be removed by rubbing it off or peeling with a knife. Apply paint in the desired method (rubbing plates, stencil brushes, rubbing, or direct drawing). Allow to dry thoroughly, generally 3-5 days on fabric. Iron on the appropriate temperature setting for the fabric for 10-15 seconds per area until all of the design has been heat set. Use a press cloth or paper to protect iron and ironing board. Wash gently in cool to warm water to remove any residue.

Do not dry clean.
