Yes, prior to being decorated with Fabric Creations Plush, all fabrics should be prewashed using soap and water following the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Most denim fabrics should be washed multiple times in hot water to remove thoroughly the sizing in the fabric. DO NOT use liquid fabric softener or dryer sheet as doing so may prevent the paints from adhering to your fabric properly. If your garment is wrinkled, you may iron the fabric as instructed on the garment label; however, DO NOT use spray starch as that, too, may prevent the paint from adhering to your fabric properly.
For best results, use soft, low-textured fabrics such as cottons, poly cotton blends, woven blends, denims, and home décor textiles when decorating with Fabric Creations Plush. Fabrics should be flexible and have some pliancy to achieve the full plush effect; stiff fabrics such canvas are not recommended as the dimensional effect of the paint will not work.
