Query on fabric painting

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Query on fabric painting

I used acrylic paint on Annie's top. I've ironed it. Does ironing set it like normal fabric paint? His do I wash it?

It doesn't need ironing to set.
I'd give it 48, maybe 72 hours to dry and wash as normal.
The problem with acrylic is that it cracks. But I think that can look good. Depends on the child, I have one who would be determined to pick the paint off.

Thanks. It looks really good although got soaked at the water table this PM but that means it didn't make it to dinner so is clean!!

I can see it would crack but its a very baggy peasant style t so I doubt she'd fill it to stretching point so there is hope!!

It'll probably crack when you wash it, depending on how thick the paint is.
