44 colours available in 15 ml and 47 colours available in 50 ml
All-purpose, water based fabric paint and printing ink for light coloured fabrics; ideal for school, hobby and leisure use. Marabu-Textil is washing machine resistant up to 60 C; fluorescent shades up to 40 C. The colours offer good fade-resistance, can be intermixed and diluted with water. The opacity of Marabu-Textil is very good on light coloured fabrics; for dark materials we recommend Marabu-Textil plus. Apart from knitted garments, Marabu-Textil is suitable for all non-finished fabrics such as cotton, linen, jute, silk and blended woven fabrics up to max. 20 % synthetic content. Marabu-Textil is easy to apply and has a particularly soft feel.
Before painting, wash to remove dressing and softening agent. Apply Marabu-Textil to the dried fabric and allow to dry. Then iron the whole painted area (30 x 30 cm of each) from the front, through a thin cloth, at the heat setting for cotton, for three minutes or fix in a pre-heated oven for 8 min. at 150 C. After that, Marabu-Textil is extremely wash resistant up to 60 C, Textil-Fluorescent up to 40 C. Clean brushes and other utensils with water immediately after use. Always wash and iron the painted textiles inside out or iron the whole painted area from the front, through a thin cloth.
