Textile Medium

Textile Medium

Textile Medium allows permanent non-fading painting on natural and non-synthetic fabric.  It is only necessary if the fabric to be decorated is to be laundered or dry cleaned.  Fabric containing a minimum of 50% cotton is recommended for best adhesion.

 

Directions:

  • Pre-wash fabric to remove sizing.  Do not use fabric softener.
  • Mix a minimum of 2 parts Jo Sonja Matte Flow Acrylic with 1 part Textile Medium.  Painting a test strip is recommended.
  • The addition of Textile Medium may stiffen painted area.  This will soften with washing.
  • Apply to fabric ensuring paint penetration of fibres.  Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
  • All Purpose Sealer may be applied to the edges of your cut fabric to prevent fraying.  Seal ¼” (1/2cm) beyond cut edge.

 

Heat Setting Instructions:

  • Excessive temperature can cause colour change; pre-testing is recommended as follows:
  • Using your dry test strip, cover painted area with a cloth or brown paper.
  • Start with low heat setting, gradually increasing temperature until colour begins to “shift”, then lower the temperature slightly and make note of your iron setting.
  • Iron decorated area for a minimum of 2 minutes on this setting.

 

Note: Launder article with mild detergent and delicate heat.

Caution: Sone cleaning chemicals may affect colour.
