I use acrylic paint & fabric additive (Americana or Folk Art) to paint tee shirts but sometimes they come out stiff.
IS that too much fabric additive or too little? Some flowers like hydrangeas need layering and I wonder if they will chip off later?
How do you paint on shirts? Tips please!
Not sure, without directions on mixing?
I have always used Createx airbrush paints, whenever painting on fabric. With a bonding additive, one can paint with them (even without an airbrush) on fabrics and they are very flexible and permanent.
Prewashing fabric is always a good plan too. Many of the full bodied craft paints just don't have enough pigment to satisfy coloration without applying thick coats...which may also tend to crack?
I gave up additives for painting on fabric (and other surfaces) a long time ago. I now use DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paints. They stay extremely flexible, permanent, don't require heat setting, and wash great.
Paints have changed so much for the better over the years and I choose to use a paint that's made specifically for the surface I am painting on.This message has been edited. Last edited by: rainee,
