Flash back to some of your very first craft projects. Did you use felt? Glitter? A hot glue gun? Of course we all still use those now. What about when you began making your own super-styling t-shirts to wear, complete with your own design, name, and maybe even graduating year? What was the one product that you couldn’t do that without?
It is available in craft stores (I got mine at Joann Fabrics) for about $10.00. Complete with basic colors such as red, blue, green, and yellow; this set also includes two pastels in pink and purple. My favorite feature of this particular pack from Tulip, is that it includes two bottles each of both black and white, the colors I tend to go through more quickly.
It can also be used for its intended purpose of course, to draw designs on fabric (which remains washable once it dries). One of my favorite craft projects when I was younger, was to use puff paint in dots around a cut out pattern (like a kind of backwards stencil) as shown in these holiday gloves below:
- The 10-Piece Value Pack is an excellent bargain considering how many colors are included.
- Nozzle provides easy flow of paint, and yet is small enough for details.
- Uses are endless, and can be applied to crafting and altered art, scrapbooking, or fabric projects.
- Paint dries quickly, and is completely dry within a few hours
- Fabric items made with this set will be machine washable about 3 days after paint is applied.
- Paint is non-toxic, according to the package.
- Flow of paint sometimes slows (though storing upside down and trimming the nozzle helps.
- Washing must be done on gentle cycle only for fabric projects.
- If used on a layout and stored in an album, the height of the paint will smash down a bit when flattened between two pages. Keep this in mind when decided exactly how much paint will be applied to your design.
All in all, I am sure you will find this product a versatile addition to your crafting supply stash, and I do highly recommend it. We’d love to see what other fun uses you can come up with for this “oldie but goody” as well!
