Pebeo

Pebeo

The Pebeo factory which is based near Marseilles, France began creating fine artist paints in 1919. The name is a phonic rendering of the base material for paints at that time, lead oxide, with the chemical symbol PbO. The company began making dye and pigment based products for use on fabrics in the early 1960's starting with Setacolour.

Pebeo Silk paints can be used for decorating fabrics by a wide range of techniques including stencilling, salt effects, screen printing, hand painting. All the paints require heat setting for permanence. The paints are supported by the Pebeo range of Gutta outliners which help define the design and have minimal effect on the handle of the fabric. Pebeo also manufacture an expandable 'puff' paint which forms a bulky image with a suede finish after drying and ironing.

The Pebeo Gedeo resin is transparent which imitates the look of glass with the sturdiness of resin. It has a high-gloss finish and does not shrink when cured. When mixed with acrylics paints it will create a wide range of effects such as precious stones, marbling, glass-like effects and more. The resin can be used to secure small objects to flat surfaces by embedding them in a coat of freshly applied resin.

The Pebeo fabric paints have a fine consistency designed for hand painting or air-brushing. They can be mixed with up to 50% water like a liquid dye, though they are in fact pigments, with an added acrylic binder to fix them to the fabric.
