DYES: Setacolor Fabric
Paints, Shimmer Colors
Vivid and bright, the Setacolor Opaque colours have
an exceptional covering power to decorate both dark or light coloured
fabrics. Their rich texture is especially suited for brush work, stencil
work and even silkscreen printing.
||Water-based, non-toxic, concentrated, and particularly
vivid. They can be used to paint, stain or print natural and synthetic
fibers; fine or thick, light or dark, without altering the hand (be
sure to remove sizing before you start adding color). All colors mix,
and they can be thinned with water to obtain watercolor effects. To
fix, iron on the reverse side of the decorated fabric for 3 minutes
on hot (cotton) setting. Or bake the fabric in an oven for 5 minutes
at 150°C (300°F). Once fixed, fabric may be machine washed
or dry cleaned. Once set, colors tolerate machine washing at 100ºF
or dry cleaning. Excellent lightfastness. Use soapy water to clean
The Setacolor Shimmers have rich, deep shades that glitter
and change with the light. They work best undiluted.
The Setacolor Transparents are suitable for all techniques
on light colored fabrics. They are well suited for brush work, stencil
work or silkscreen printing, and are especially appropriate for diluted
techniques. The Setacolor transparent paints are light-sensitive and can
therefore be used to obtain remarkable effects with sunlight (2 parts
water for one part color).
Use the Lightener to create lighter shades without weakening
or thinning the product. Please note that the colours will be less opaque.
The Thickener is specially recommended for stencilling
or silk-screen printing workMix a few drops of thickener at a time with
paint until you reach the desired consistency.
Most of the colors are also available in 250 ml containers; please ask.
