What is the best way to clean up my supplies or a small painted mistake when I am fabric painting?
FolkArt® Fabric™ paints are water soluble and clean up is easy using soap and water to clean your brushes. While painting, if a mistake is made, try incorporating the dot of paint into the design by adding another flower or a lady bug, etc. However, if you begin cleaning the wet, misplaced drop of paint quickly using soap and water, the mistake can be cleaned up.
What is the best way to support my fabric project while painting my design?
Placing a wax paper or plastic wrapped cardboard form behind the area to be painted will not only give you a sturdy surface on which to paint, you will also protect the back or additional layers of your project. You may also find it helpful to tape a piece of fine grade sandpaper to the cardboard form; this will keep your fabric from shifting while painting.
I've noticed that my painting has started to flake off my glassware after I washed it. Why is this happening?
Are you handwashing these items? If not, are you placing them only in the top rack of the dishwasher? If so the problem may be that you did not use enough paint. You can either go over your design with more paint or with the Clear Medium. The Clear Medium will help the paint adhesion and should only be applied over your design, otherwise you may see streaks. Once you go over your design you will have to bake your glassware again or allow it to cure for 21 days. If painted glassware was not properly cured, it can cause flaking. Any water used on brushed or in paint will cause it to not adhere well.
What is the One Stroke™ scruffy brush used for and how do you prepare it?
When you take the scruffy brush from the package, it needs to be prepared for painting. First, pounce it into the palm of your hand to help remove the sizing and fluff bristles.
Next, use your thumb to spread the bristles.
A fluffed scruffy brush is used to paint mosses, wisteria, lilacs, some hair and fur, faux finishes, and shading textures. This brush is not used with water.
