Fabric Paints

by Rekha on August 4, 2016

I love working with fabric paints! They provide endless opportunities to transform your wardrobe and create one-of-a-kind wearable art.

There are several brands available however the brand I work with most often is Jacquard Textile Paints. The medium consistency delivers intense color and leaves your fabric soft. Be careful not to dilute with too much water – you don’t want the color run or lose its brightness.

Here’s a client project I worked on this summer where I gave a faded design a new life on a summer dress. I carefully hand-painted each flower, leaf and stem with Golden Rod and Emerald Green. The dress is now restored to its original state and the end result is happy customer.
