Is it necessary to heat-set a fabric project when using Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink?

Yes, heat-setting is recommended to maximize the durability of your fabric decorated with Fabric Creations. To heat-set your project, follow the instructions below:

  1. Allow the decorated fabric to dry overnight.
  2. Heat an iron to the highest setting allowed for the decorated fabric.
  3. Keeping the heated iron dry, position the project fabric decorated-side up and then lay a pressing cloth over the fabric.
  4. Without using steam, press the decorated fabric area for 30 seconds, lift the iron and move to another section.
  5. Continue until the entire design area has been heat set.
