A variety of craft paints for painting or decorating textiles
and other surfaces. The fluid silk paints are for painting on silk fabrics and
fine weaves, while the less fluid fabric
paints are more suitable for painting on cotton, cardboard, paper and polymer clay. The Jacquard Lumiere can be used on stretch fabrics such as knits and lycra
as it stretches with the fabric.
The glass paints are also multi-use. These can be used on
china, porcelain, plastics, metal and stone.
Heat transfer paints are designed for use on polyester and other
synthetics and prints can be reproduced a number of times, while
the marbling paints offer a more random method of printing.
The range of painting equipment includes silk
painting frames and pins, brushes, paint mixing dishes and the Colour Mixing Wheel.
If you would like to have a go at painting on fabric, the George Weil
provides a good choice of finely woven cottons and silks. Our
