Q & A

What types of printing can I use the paint for?

Fabric printing, screen print, stencil work & stamps. The paint is a light pigment based paint made from a selectasine binder. From lino to fabric printing our paints are multi functional to surface design.

What surfaces can I print on with the paints?

Paints can be applied to any matt surface. From paper, fabric & even wood.

How do I fix the paint?

To permanently fix the paint when dry you can use a number of different finishes. For fabric, steaming the area will fix the paint due to the binder in the paint. A domestic Iron can be used to heat the area too.  For other surfaces varnish or spray fixers can be applied on top of the paint when dry.

Do the paints stain?

The paints do have a fixing agent within the binder. Please be carful to avoid getting on clothes.
