Do I have to use a medium when fabric painting using FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint?

Do I need to heat set my fabric project when using FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint?
It is recommended that you allow 24 hours for your decorated fabric project to air dry; then heat set. Two heat setting methods are recommended:
Dryer Method: Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.

Iron Method: Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth. Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used. Place dry iron (no steam) on area pressing for 30 seconds, lift iron moving to another area until all sections are heat set. Keep the iron moving in a small circular motion when heat setting.
Do I need to support or back my fabric project while painting with FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint?
It is best to provide a firm painting surface such as wax covered cardboard between your fabric project and your work surface.
How do I clean FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint out of my brushes?
The paint easily cleans up with soap and water while still wet.
How do I cure painted glass or ceramics when using FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint?
There are two types of curing methods that can be used with FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint: baking and air drying. NOTE: Please use the bake method for items you intend to wash in the top rack of your dishwasher. 

Bake Method:
  1. Allow painted item to dry for 24 hours to be sure all layers of paint have dried.
  2. Place project in a cool oven, as the glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage; do not place glass in a hot oven.
  3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
  4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let glass cool down completely before removing from the oven.
  6. Do not use for 72 hours.
Air Dry Method: Paint is cured to the surface after 21 days; however, the air-dried projects are NOT suitable for use in the top rack of your dishwasher.
