faqs
What types of fabrics can be decorated using Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Inks?

For best results, use smooth or low-textured fabrics such as cottons, poly-cotton blends, woven blends, denims, and home décor textiles when decorating with Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Inks. Textured or ribbed fabrics can also be used; however, a portion of the decorated design may be lost within the ribs or over the texture of the fabric surface.

Should I prewash the fabric to remove sizing before painting using Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Inks?

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 remove thoroughly the sizing in the fabric. DO NOT use liquid fabric softener or dryer sheet as doing so may prevent the inks from adhering to your fabric properly. If your garment is wrinkled, you may iron the fabric as instructed on the garment label; however, DO NOT use spray starch as that, too, may prevent the ink from adhering to your fabric properly.

How long does it take for the Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink to dry and cure?

Generally, Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Inks dry within two hours; however, it can take up to 24 hours, depending upon the thickness of application as well as the humidity of your work area. The decorated fabric surface will be cured in 72 hours.

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.
How should I launder fabrics decorated with Fabric Creations Soft Fabric?

Once heat-set, a project painted with Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Inks 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.
