Application

For best results wash and iron beforehand to remove any sizing. Allow the fabric to dry. The markers will work on cotton, polyester and most fabrics. Please note that colours may not show up on dark coloured fabrics.
It is prudent to do a test piece prior to embarking on a large project.
Place the fabric to be decorated on top of a piece paper or cardboard to prevent the markers from bleeding through the cloth. If you are drawing on a T-shirt, place the paper inside the shirt, between the front and back sections. Lay the fabric out on any work surface so it is smooth. It is best to tape the edges to hold the fabric in place while you work.
Colour your material using a plenty of ink. Light marks are more likely to wash out. Saturating the fabric well will guarantee the colour will remain on the fabric. Put aside your creation to let it dry before you set the design with heat. Drying times may range from just a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on how thoroughly you have covered your fabric. Test the surface of the paint to ensure it is dry.

Heat Fixing:

Set the markers by using either an iron or clothes dryer.
Iron: With an iron on cotton setting – press over the design slowly for about 2 to 3 minutes on the reverse side of the fabric. Move the hot iron over the surface evenly.
Dryer: If you prefer to use the dryer, tumble dry on high for about an hour and a half. Tumble dry only the items you have coloured with your fabric markers in the same load to avoid staining other clothing.

Washing:

Allow 48 hrs. after fixing before washing. Gentle machine-washing in cold water is best. Do not use bleach. Hang to dry.

Storage:

Store markers in a horizontal position in a cool place -box, pencil case, drawer, etc.- and always replace caps tightly after use.
