Fabric paint?

Recommend me some fabric paint please! Preferably one that is sold in Hobbycraft because I have a gift card to spend.

I'm planning on doing a couple of t shirts and canvas tote bags, so the paint needs to be suitable for both. I'm rubbish at painting, so one that doesn't bleed everywhere/easy to apply would also be useful!

I didn't even realise there were different types :oops: I've just got a pot of stuff I bought online!

I also have some fabric felt pens which are nice & crayons which Bruno used for the bags last year.

you can buy fabric paint, but acrylic paint is absolutely fine on its own, I just buy the big tubes in the works or wilko. if you are putting it in clothing and wish to have a softer feel to the finish then you can mix fabric medium into the acrylic before using, but acrylic on its own is still good too. acrylic paint is good for stencilling but if you want to just have coloured lines onto fabric then you can buy tulip paint in a tube and use that.
