White fabric paint - February 26th 2018, 05:08 PM

Hello everyone,
I've got a question concerning fabric paints. Have you ever used them on your clothes? Did it turned out well?
I'd like to use a white paint on my denim vest and possibly also on trousers. I'd appreciate advice on which paint to choose and how to handle the whole process (I've never painted my clothes before).
Thank you,

I am sorry you have not received a response sooner than now. I was hoping someone with more knowledge would respond.

I have used Fabric paint a few times in my life but it was for church activities when I was child. I don't remember much about it. I know that using too much of the paint can end up leading to the fabric being too stiff and almost impossible to wear. I imagine the fabric paint comes with instructions on how best to use it.

It might be worth trying to google which fabric paint would be the best for denim. I know google is not ideal but it might prove helpful and lead to you being able to find the fabric pain that will work best.

Best regards.

Fabric paint is permanent so I suggest using a stencil for the design rather than freehand painting it.

I have one bottle in front of me and there's instructions on the bottle. If you want I can type out the instructions as well as provide the brand I'm using but it will probably vary for each paint.

Part of what it says is to wait for it to dry and then iron the reverse side

Hey there! Sorry I haven't replied until now but I just got back.

I had a birthday party where we painted shirts and you want to make sure you use good quality fabric paint. I'm not sure where you are from so it's hard to say what brand to use. However, I would highly recommend you use a template. If you want to be creative, you can use a word document and play around with the fonts and print it on thick paper and then cut it out to make your own templates! We did this at my party and it worked really well. You want to make sure you give it lots of time to properly dry. Also, if it is possible, I would recommend you practice on something first.

According to my research, you can also use acrylic paint and a fabric medium/textile medium if you don't have access to fabric paint but I can't guarantee that it will work as well as fabric paint.

I hope this helps!
