Should I prewash the fabric to remove sizing before stamping my design?
Yes, 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 thoroughly remove the sizing in the fabric.
DO NOT use a liquid fabric softener or a dryer sheet as this may prevent the paints from adhering properly. If your garment is wrinkled, you may iron the fabric as instructed on the garment label, DO NOT use a spray starch product.
