Use with Fibrecrafts Heat Transfer paints to thicken the colours for printing or screen printing without loss of colour.
Method for printing with Transfer Paints:
- Brush, print, stencil or spray the design onto smooth, non-absorbent paper and allow to dry.
- Place the design with the paint side against the fabric, using several layers of newspaper as an underlay and a layer of clean paper on top to avoid ink transfer. Set iron between wool and cotton, (cotton setting for a cotton/synthetic mix) and iron for 1-2 minutes. Keep the iron still, since movement can blur the image.
- The transfer is complete when the paper begins to yellow. For larger patterns, set one area at a time, with a cooling time between transfers.
- Transfers can be used more than once, but each subsequent application will give a duller image with some colour change. Colours are intermixable, non-toxic, water based and wash fast, with a soft and flexible handle.
