Fabric Paint

These Colouricious Fabric Paints are our favourite textile paints. The colours are strong and vibrant and easy to apply. They come in a soft squeeze bottle so nothing gets wasted in the bottom. The paint squeezes easily out of the nozzle and has a very long shelf life. What we also love is that this fabric paint is easy to fix – simply iron the fabric as hot as the fabric will bear and then your fabric can be washed up to 40degrees and your design will stay permanent. A little tip if you have a tumble dryer – you can put your fabric into the tumble dryer for five minutes and that will also set your paint to permanent. This professional grade Colouricious fabric paint is water based – that means that when it is dry, it does not sit on top of the fabric, making it stiff and crispy. The paint soaks around the fibres and keeps them soft so the handle of the fabric is not compromised at all.

When your fabric paint bottles are empty use them to dye your own fabric. Simply top up the empty bottle with water, give it a shake and then splash it over some fabric to dye it. Simply leave to dry and heat set with an iron.

watch how you can dye your own fabric using what you thought were empty bottles!

Dyeing Fabric using Recycled fabric and Recycled Paints

Our Colouricious textile paints are non-toxic and conforms to EN71-3:2013 specifications . They are safe for adults and children to use – naturally you cannot drink it and please do wash your hands after use. You find find them wonderful to use, being water based paint, they do not sit on top of the fabric as an acrylic paint would. The paint absorbs into the fibres and the fabric’s handle is not altered. Easy to use, easy to fix and non-toxic – perfect for fabric painting and printing techniques.

The colours mix so beautifully together, it is hard to describe the enormous spectrum that you can create by mixing the colours together. If you are a colouricious sort of person, just like us, thriving on colour, then you will adore these colours.
