Heat setting is a final, very important, step in decorating fabric and leather. For synthetic fabric, consult the manufacturer, or test small areas first. Always make sure the paint is dry before heat setting.
Silk Screen Infrared Heat Conveyor - 2 minutes at 320 to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Transfer heat press – 30 seconds at 350 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Test your press periodically for proper temperature read out – consult with manufacturer.
- Iron – Cotton or highest setting for 2 minutes for each area covered by the size of the iron. Do not iron directly onto the painted surface. Protect it with a cloth. Use circular motion to avoid “hot spots” that can burn the fabric.
- Industrial Heat Gun– 1000 degrees Fahrenheit in circular motion at 2 inch (5 cm) distance, for 30 seconds on each 5 inch (13cm) by 7 inch (18cm) area.
For best results hand washing is strongly recommended. Machine washing is too abrasive for delicate work and garments as well. Your Art commands respect!
“The Lube”: Special Flow Enhancer
Medea Textile Paint by Jürek uses modern technology to eliminate clogging. We call this new technology “The Lube”. It is not just an additive mixed with existing paint, but rather a whole chemical design of the base of the paint. This special base acts as a flow enhancement that allows the paint to be free FROM the hassles of clogging. So more time spraying and less time cleaning your airbrush. The flow enhancer breaks down the viscosity of the paint, resulting in better spray and better absorption of paint INTO fabrics. The absorption INTO fabrics is the key for success in fabric arts. The colours must penetrate the fibres to ensure vivid colours and, most importantly, proper wash-fastness.
