What are the instructions for putting my fabric decoupage project in the washing machine?
After air drying your fabric to fabric decoupage project for 72 hours in a mild dry room, your project can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle cycle using cool water and mild detergent. Fabric softener should not be used.
When washing your Fabric to Fabric decoupage project in the washer, your decoupage layer will absorb a little water and create a milky look. Your project will be a little tender at this point, so be careful when handling. But do not be alarmed it will fully dry to its original state.

We recommend cleaning an Oilcloth decoupage project by wiping the surface with soft cloth, cool water and mild detergent; it is not recommended to put in the washing machine.
Should I prewash the fabric before screen print painting 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.
How should I launder fabrics decorated with Fabric Creations Plush?

Once heat-set, a project painted with Fabric Creations Plush paints can be machine-laundered on the gentle cycle; however, to preserve the life and durability of your decorated fabric, it is always best to hand-wash in cold water and allow to air-dry.

How shall I launder my FolkArt® Fabric™ painted item?
FolkArt® Fabric™ Brush-on and FolkArt® Fabric™ Dimensional paints have been tested for machine washing, however, with all hand painted items, it is best if they are hand washed in cold water and air dried which will increase their durability. If washing by machine, turn your garment which has been painted without dimensional accents inside out and use cold water with a mild detergent on the gentle cycle of your washer and dryer. DO NOT place the item in the washer or dryer if dimensional paints or crystal embellishments have been used. Remember: You MUST still follow heat setting instructions prior to wearing and/or laundering your garment. Using the washer and dryer is for pre-washing fabric and heat setting only. Enjoy!
How do I wash my project that’s decorated with Fabric Mod Podge?
The project is machine washable in cold water on the gentle cycle or by hand after 72 hours, and line dry. However, Fabric Mod Podge® will hold up best on decorative items that don’t have to be washed often.
What is the best technique for stamping the surface?
Position your wrinkle-free fabric directly over the Fabric Creations™ Stamping Mat.
Once the block stamp is loaded with Soft Fabric Ink, and the stamping mat is directly under the fabric to be decorated, press the ink side of the stamp onto the project surface firmly. Be careful, do NOT rock the stamp; lift the stamp straight up to reveal the stamped design. Continue stamping until the block printed design is complete. For consistent design prints, apply additional fabric ink with each individual block print.
