Setacolor is a range of concentrated heat fixable fabric paints for decorating fabrics. Particularly vivid and bright, Setacolor fabric paints can be used to paint, stain or print natural or synthetic fibers. After fixing with an iron, they are resistant to washing (in water up to 40°C) and dry cleaning and the fabric retains all of its suppleness.
Setacolor Opaque colours: Opaque and high pigmented, vivid and intense. Colours can be mixed together. Excellent lightfastness. Great on light and dark fabrics.
Setacolor Opaque Shimmering colours: Opaque and highly pigmented, with fine shimmer particles for metallic effects. Colours can be mixed together. Excellent lightfastness. Great on light and dark fabrics.
Setacolor Light Fabrics and Fluorescent Light Fabrics colours: Matte, transparent, bright and vivid. More viscous consistency, the light fabrics range is softer to the touch. Colours can be mixed together. Excellent lightfastness. Exclusively for light coloured fabrics.
Setacolor Opaque Suede Effect: Gives fabrics volume effects and a soft feel. When applied, the colours are bright and pearlescent. Suede effect: The soft and flocked sueded effect appears once the colours are fixed.
Setacolor Light Fabrics Glitter: The fine colored glitters perfectly match a same colour base giving a sophisticated and effervescent range.
Cleaning the brushes: Use soapy water.
Surfaces: All types of fabrics: fine or thick, natural or synthetic fibers.
Drying: Air dry for approximately 1 hour. Heavier paint applications may require longer drying times.
Fixing: Two possibilities: with an iron (cotton position), for 5 minutes, on the reverse side of the fabric; in the oven, for 5 minutes at 150°C (300°F) (stabilized temperature).
Caring: 48 hours after fixing, the colours resist machine washing up to 40°C (100°F) and dry cleaning.
Setacolor paints can be used on all fabrics, fine or heavy: cotton, wool, velvet, non-woven and even leather. Ready to use, intense and concentrated, they are used pure or diluted with water to obtain watercolour effects. Setacolor fabric paints are suitable for various techniques.
Specially formulated to be used in combination with the Setacolor colours, this new range of auxiliary products allows you to adapt the colours to different techniques and to enlarge the creative possibilities.
Lightener : Used to create lighter shades without weakening or thinning the product. Please note that the colours will be less opaque.
Thickener : Specially recommended for stencilling or silk-screen printing work. Briskly mix a few drops of thickener with the colour until you obtain the desired consistency.
Expandable puff paste: This spectacular product is used to create 3-dimensional patterns. Bright colours : simply apply the paste with a brush, allow to dry and then apply Setacolor paints as desired. Pastel colours : mix the paste with one of the Setacolor paints, then apply as mentioned above. In both cases, allow to dry, then expand by ironing on the reverse side of the fabric or use a hair dryer.
