Heat-setting Touch Textile 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: Clothing items and accessories from jeans, hats, purses, to fabric running shoes can also be embellished with
spectacular colorful designs. Achieve a unique watercolour effect by going over the marker lines with a paintbrush and some water.
They can also be used in combination with and over fabric paints.
SetaSkrib fabric makers and 3D Touch Textile are so easy to use with basic stencil shapes, or freehand style.
Setaskrib and setaskrib+ fabric markers are very practical felt tip markers for drawing on all types of fabrics, clothing
and accessories. They are available in fine, broad or "brush" tips, they are available in bright to fluorescent fashion
colours. The clear vivid and bright colours will liven up plain fashions in no time at all.
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.
When using fabric markers you can either follow a design that is already on clothing items or you can opt to go free-
hand. You can also add your own designs using chalk. It can easily be wiped off afterwards or wash off when put in
the washing machine.
To use the markers 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 them dry and cure
completely at room temperature for 24 hours.
Heat-setting the fabric markers; SetaSkrib fabric markers are heat set by ironing on the reverse side of the item
by pressing for two to three minutes on the cotton or high setting. Once heat-set, the colourful marker designs are
permanent and are machine washable and dryer safe. Wait at least 48 hours before washing them. The colours will
not fade, crack or peel-off, and remain flexible once dry. You will be amazed on how bright the colours remain.
Shorts and sweat shirts where fashioned with a combination of fabric markers and the 3D Touch Textile to create colourful circles and
dots. The girls applied their names on their personalized creations. 3D Touch and touch Textile can be applied to various surfaces,
even Crocks, such as this unique creation.
