It was so easy literally a caveman can do it. You just start painting. You can lightly sketch with a pencil your design, print a design or even finger paint it on. Remember if you write words reverse them so they will show up the right way when ironed on.
I randomly drew out a raven and sort of a skeletal hand. In the ironed on pictures you can see where the prints were lighter in the ligher painted areas and darker in others, this could produce some really interesting effects.
Then you let the paint dry for 30 minutes and iron it onto your cloth. Apparently you can get 3 transfers per painting piece but I only did one for these.
The colors paint darker than they print but that doesn't really bother me too much. There is a free guide you can look at to see the colors before and after, check in the aisle where you buy your paints.
Once they dried completely the fabric was not stiff nor did it crack when moved.
I have never been this excited about a new craft/paint product as I am with these. I foresee lots of possibilities and plan on purchasing a bunch of new colors soon.
You can see lots of other projects at the Decoart Gallery page.
This is how much I am in love with these paints.....I hope they spark something in you too!
