"Back-to-school 3D Chic Style!
Let your kids design and personalize their back to school fashions with
Textile Pébéo Touch 3D relief paints. They are non-toxic and super easy to use.
Regular Pébéo Touch 3D Paints are a multi-surface relief paints which can be applied to
virtually any surface and material such as Paper, cardboard, glass, metal, wood, virtually
on all surfaces and materials. They are fabulous for jazzing up all kinds of back to school
items from note books to pack sacs. There plenty of time left for the kids to keep busy and
creative before they go back to school.
Materials & tools:
• Plain t-shirts in colours of their choice or various fashion items of your child’s choice
(you can revive the ones that you already have or embellish new ones)
• A piece of cardboard
• Stencil, clip-art or design of choice to use as templates (optional)
• Textile Pébéo Touch 3D relief paints by Pébéo in assorted colours and effects
• Transfer paper and pencil.
• Painter’s tape (optional)
(Materials for this project are available at arts, crafts, and fabric stores.)
It’s fun and easy to transform plain t-shirts or clothing items with various creative works of
art, or to spruce some of last years cloths with new cool designs, of their choice. From free-
hand style, to a design that your child likes such as eagles, carps or flowers, even simple
geometric shapes, swirls and even scribbles. It's all up to their imaginations.
Pre-wash, dry and iron the t-shirts of fashion items to be used. For optimum color
adhesion, do not use bleach or softeners. Place a piece of cardboard between two layers
of fabric to prevent the color from seeping through.
You can secure the t-shirts to a work area by placing painter’s tape on the sides along the
borders of the items, for stability while drawing on the t-shirts.
Apply the colours straight from the tube. To use touch Textile on the fabric, simply press
lightly and glide evenly. Children can follow a design of their choice, or work free-hand
such as loops, swirls, lines, checks, dots, curves or funky graffiti-style artwork. Once the
child is finished or satisfied with the composition, remove the cardboard. Set the T-shirts
aside to let air dry and cure completely at room temperature for 12-24 hours. Allow to dry
up to 48 hours in moist conditions or when paint is thickly applied. Wait at least 48 hours
before washing the newly decorated fabrics. The t-shirts creations will withstand machine
washing and drying. You will be amazed on how bright the colors remain.
Heat-setting and care; Heat setting is not required with the NEW Touch Textile tubes.
They are especially formulated to simply air dry and self set.
Can be washed at 40 Deg C 72 hours after application. Short wash with no softener.
Air dry only.
Variations: Various items that can be Touched up with flair for back to school are; school
bag,s hats, purses, belts, running shoes, head bands. Great to use to but you child name
in or on gym clothing, sports bags, canvas lunch bags.
The paint has a glue like quality which will adhere various embellishments to clothing or
Touch products can also use decorate various items and accessories in your child
bedroom, such as pillows, curtains, desktop accessories, and various decorative items,
from frames to shelves.
