Painted Bag using Decoart Sosoft Fabric Paint

This canvas bag has been painted with Maureen McNaughton Strokework design using Decoart Sosoft Fabric Paint. This is one of the item that I did for Nur Magazine. We have quite a range of colours of Sosoft Fabric Paint available at the shop or you can buy online here to paint of fabric material.

You have to use brush to paint on certain areas of the fabric and you should not mixed it with water i.e you apply directly to the surface and then dry it for a day. Before washing make sure you iron the area you have painted. Put a piece of cloth on top of it so that the iron does not come in contact directly on the paint.
