FAQs

Can I create a layered border effect with a painted background by taping off an area?
Yes, simply use stencil or painter’s tape to mask off a border. Load a Fabric Creations™ Sponge Cube with Soft Fabric Ink and pounce the color onto the masked area.
Be sure to allow the painted background area to dry thoroughly before stamping over it with a design.
Can I mix Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Inks to achieve a new color?
Yes, Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Inks may be mixed or blended to achieve a new value or different color.
Is it necessary to heat set my block printed project when using Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Ink?
Heat setting is recommended for best durability.
Heat set the painted surface using a dry, hot iron and a pressing cloth. Lay pressing cloth over the stamped fabric and iron the stamped design for 30 seconds, lift the iron and move it to another section of the stamped design. Your iron should be set at the highest setting allowed for the decorated fabric, no steam.
Should I use water to thin the Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Ink?
No, Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Inks are formulated in the perfect consistency to be used directly from the bottle.
Thinning these paints with water will not only dilute the paint possibly causing bleed through when stamping; it will also lessen the adhesion properties of the paint and possibly create a dirty unusable stamp because the thinned paint will flow into the delicate recessed areas of the stamp rather than sitting on the raised design lines.
