DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint is the softest fabric acrylic on the market. It is permanent and requires no heat setting. Once dry, it is extremely soft and flexible to the touch. It adheres to all textiles and will not crack, peel, or harden even after repeated use and washings.
Pre-wash wearables without adding any fabric softeners. Apply with a brush, sponge, or stamp. Allow to dry for 48-72 hours and then wash inside-out on the gentle cycle. Hang to dry or dry on low heat. Do not dry clean. Soap and water clean up.USING TRANSPARENT MEDIUM
Pre-wash wearables without adding any fabric softeners. Use as a basecoat under SoSoft acrylics to make the paint easily glide across the fabric surface. Mix with the paint to create transparent or translucent effects. Dries clear, soft, and flexible. Clean up with soap and water.TO USE FOR SILK PAINTING
Wash and dry the fabric. Lay a paper towel under the layer of silk to be painted. Apply SoSoft as desired. Moisten brush with water for detail and line work. Resist mediums are not necessary. Remove paper towel and allow 24 hours for paint to cure.TO USE ON QUILTS
SoSoft is the ideal paint for adding details to quilts because it will not gum up a needle when sewing. First, appply the Transparent Medium on the fabric. Then use wet-on-wet technique to apply the paint over the medium, where desired. Try corner-loading the brush to achieve light, medium, or dark color values with a very small amount of pigment. This reducing the amont of highlighting and shading needed, thus avoiding paint buildup. The heavier the paint is applied, the more washings it takes before the paint softens. Paint will be soft once dry.TO USE AS A WATERCOLOR
Use a spray bottle filled with cool water to dampen an area slightly larger than the painting area. Apply SoSoft using a soft bristle brush. Use the same brush to apply additional water at edges of color, brushing across the fabric where the color meets the clear water area. Paint will continue to "bleed" until dry. Allow fabric to lie flat until dry. To stop the bleeding earlier, use a hair dryer around the edges to dry the water.
Do not use bleach or detergent with special additives such as whitener or lemon scents.
Use a wet-on-wet technique for best results.
Allow paint to lay on top of the fabric for a bit to allow adequate blending time.
Do not use SoSoft fabric paints with regular acrylic paint on surfaces you will want to wash. Regular acrylics require fabric medium and heat setting.
SoSoft color names coordinate with Americana Acrylics color names, which means you can substitute SoSoft fabric paints in Americana project instructions calling for the same colors.
Prevent paint from bleeding through fabric by separating layers with a piece of cardboard wrapped with plastic, freezer paper, or foil. Remove fabric before completely dry to prevent it from sticking.
