Heat setting is recommended for best durability. Allow the painted design to dry overnight. Place the item in a clothes dryer for 30 minutes on the highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used, OR you may heat set the painted piece using a dry iron and a pressing cloth by laying the pressing cloth over the painted fabric and iron the painted design for 10 seconds, lift the iron and move it to another section of the painted design. Your iron should be set at the highest setting allowed for the fabric used. NOTE: When using the FolkArt® Fabric™ Dimensional paint, you will not be able to heat set by iron, air dry your project for 72 hours and turn your garment inside out and heat set in the dryer for 30 minutes. Dryer is only used for heat setting fabric.
When designing fashion and home décor fabrics, there are a couple of techniques that can be used when applying Simply Screen printing paints.  1.  After the silk screen stencil is in place, tacky side down onto your fabric surface, squeeze paint onto the screen stencil; using the squeegee applicator, pull paint down over the stencil.  OR  2.  Squeeze paint onto a foam plate; using fabric painting brushes, paint the design brushing through the silk screen.
Simply Screen Printing Paints are water-based and specially formulated to be used with Simply Screen silk screen stencils. Formulated with a thicker consistency, Simply Screen Printing Paints will set up on the silk screen stencil and flow through the screen effortlessly without bleeding or run under.  These paints are available in a wide range of fashion colors including the basic color palette, metallics, and bright neons! Formulated as non-toxic water-based paints, they are easy to clean up with mild soap and water and are made in the USA.
Yes, all fabrics should be prewashed using soap and water following the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Most denim fabrics should be washed multiple times in hot water to thoroughly remove the sizing in the fabric.  DO NOT use a liquid fabric softener or a dryer sheet as this may prevent the paints from adhering properly.  If your garment is wrinkled, you may iron the fabric as instructed on the garment label. DO NOT use a spray starch product.
