Textile Medium allows permanent non-fading painting on natural and non-synthetic fabric. It is only necessary if the fabric to be decorated is to be laundered or dry cleaned.  Fabric containing a minimum of 50% cotton is recommended for best adhesion.

Directions:
• Pre-wash fabric to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener.
• Mix a minimum of 2 parts Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colors with 1 part Textile Medium. Painting a test strip is recommended.
• The addition of Textile Medium may stiffen painted area.  This will soften with washing.
• Apply to fabric ensuring paint penetration of fibers.  Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
• All Purpose Sealer may be applied to the edges of your cut fabric to prevent fraying. Seal 1/4” (1/2 cm) beyond cut edges.

Heat Setting Instructions:
• Excessive temperature can cause color change; pre-testing is recommended as follows:
• Using your dry test strip, cover painted area with a cloth or brown paper.  Start with low heat setting, gradually increasing temperature until color begins to “shift”.  Then lower the temperature slightly and make note of your iron setting.
• Iron decorated area for a minimum of 2 minutes on this setting.

Note:  Launder articles with mild detergent and delicate heat.
Caution:  Some cleaning chemicals may affect colors.

Approximate coverage: 1 ml = 188 sq cm / 1 oz = 6 sq ft
