Textile Medium allows permanent non-fading painting on natural and non-synthetic fabric. It is only necessary if the fabric to be decorated is to be laundered or dry cleaned. Fabric containing a minimum of 50% cotton is recommended for best adhesion.
Pre-wash fabric to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener.
Mix a minimum of 2 parts Jo Sonja Matte Flow Acrylic with 1 part Textile Medium. Painting a test strip is recommended.
The addition of Textile Medium may stiffen painted area. This will soften with washing.
Apply to fabric ensuring paint penetration of fibres. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
All Purpose Sealer may be applied to the edges of your cut fabric to prevent fraying. Seal ¼” (1/2cm) beyond cut edge.
Heat Setting Instructions:
Excessive temperature can cause colour change; pre-testing is recommended as follows:
Using your dry test strip, cover painted area with a cloth or brown paper.
Start with low heat setting, gradually increasing temperature until colour begins to “shift”, then lower the temperature slightly and make note of your iron setting.
Iron decorated area for a minimum of 2 minutes on this setting.
Note: Launder article with mild detergent and delicate heat.
Caution: Sone cleaning chemicals may affect colour.
