Pink Ink Designs Fabric- Micro Fibre 145 x 50 cm
This fabric is a beautiful microfibre and is perfect for fabric painting, stamping and embroidery. It's very soft and slightly off white in colour and we have specfically selected it for it's linen style qualities, for holding pigment beautifully and for it's loose weave which makes it ideal to stitch onto, and for thread counting. We use our multi surface highly pigmented paint with lots of water to create soft, background washes, and neater paint to pick out detail on an image. This fabric is FABULOUS to stamp on to, it has a slight tooth, which makes the image not as crisp as stamping onto paper, but you can spritz the image with water and leave the pigment to seep through the fibres before fixing with a hot iron, then repeat stamp the image over the top to define the line work, heat press again, then add shade and white highlights to finish. We have a video on Youtube showing this particular technique which you can view here. We use VERSACRAFT stamping pigment, this is the only ink pad we have found that is successful when using this technique.
Our price is per half meter, pre cut at 50cm long by 140cm wide. If you require a larger piece, please message us and we will cut your fabric to order.
We use fabric specific paint, crayons, pencils and pens on material that requires laundering but we use all sorts of other pigments if they don't need to be permanent, our 'go to' paints are Pink Ink Designs multisurface paint, they work on all porous surfaces!
We paint our pre-washed microfibre with Pink Ink multi surface paint and heat set with an iron or heat gun. We recommend a hand wash setting of 30 degrees or less, for face masks we use a laundry cleanser (Dettol) which kills 99.9% of bacteria and for other items a detergent suitable for wool. If you treat your item with love and care, the colour will stay true for many washes to come. See the before and after pictures above.
