My boys love anything having to do with Star Wars. Buying all the licensed toys, legos, shirts and everything can get pretty expensive! When I recently received the new DecoArt Ink Effects line to try out, I new right away that I had to do something with Star Wars. Using a page from my son's Star Wars coloring book and paint from DecoArt Ink Effects, I made a Star Wars shirt!
Here is what I received from DecoArt Ink Effects to try out. Ink Effects paint in an assortment of all colors, and the Ink Effects Basecoat to use on fabrics more than 30% cotton.
Tip: Be very liberal in the paint that you apply. The darker and more richly you paint the image, the better. Keep in mind that the paint won't transfer as boldly as you paint it.
The DecoArt Ink Effects work best on fabric that is no more than 30% cotton. However, you can use it on other fabrics, you just have to be sure you apply the Ink Effects Basecoat. Spray it over the entire area of the fabric that you want to transfer paint onto. It needs to completely dry before the image is transferred.
After you have finished painting the image, let it dry completely. When it is completely dry and the basecoat is completely dry (if using it) then you are ready to transfer the image. Lay the image face down onto your fabric and cover it with another sheet of plain paper. Iron all over the surface for 3 minutes and apply a little bit of pressure. Make sure you get all areas of the painting.
DecoArt Ink Effects for an original painting he makes to be transferred! It is such a fun way to preserve kids art or to make custom items that they want.
