oo have just ordered some dylon paints - do they bleed then? I have been using pebeo type of paint but they dry on the surface (so kind of hard, but they may wash softer)
think its just a question of getting stuck in there and having a go .. I've just started doing them and am by no means an expert but am really enjoying it so far (I have never ever been arty in my life till now)
I used 100% cotton t-shirts and also did some 50 cotton 50 polyester sweatshirts (slightly more bleeding on the sweatshirts)
hi champs, I'm doing quite well with them, thanks for asking. I've bought the anita paints (from hobbycraft-I'm impatient!). Done one t-shirt which was some blue giraffes-don't know why. Paint is STILL bleeding, so have mixed it with water and now have nice watercolour effect t-shirts.
One thing-the Anitas paints don't say they have to be heat fixed-is this right? Can I just leave them 3 days like they say then wash?
Thanks for response. Its not actually bleeding through the layers, its just not really staying where I put it, so I have to do watercolour rather than fine detail. I quite like the design I have done, but did want to do lettering (big brother/little sister t-shirts), and there is no way it would be readable.
I am using 100% cotton but Tescos value range. I might get a couple of better quality ones from the charity shops/ebay and see if they take the paint better.
Thanks for the link btw, I will probably use them to order more supplies .
