Fantastic. I starting using these paints in conjunction with freezer paper to make my daughter's handmedowns more entertaining, and then I ended up GEEKIFYING ALL THE THINGS. My kid is now rocking a Dragon Age Inquisition dress, plants vs. zombies sweatshirt/tshirts, skull kitties, robots, jack skellington pants and a Firefly tshirt; you name it. It is literally dependent only on how much patience you have for cutting out complicated stencils and ironing all the little bits in the right places... and then maybe mixing colors to get shading and adding a few sharpie laundry marker lines. Still, everyone in the house and several good friends and their children are now sporting designs ranging from very simple shapes to designs that took two or three stencils and a lot of swearing to get right.…

This paint is very simple and easy to use to craft many items of clothing as well as glass.

I loved the use and ease of designing with this product. There is a large range of colors that blend well too.

A lot of colors

Good to put on clothes

Quality paints at a great price- versatile and multipurpose paints are terrific!

…But that doesn’t matter because in using these paints I saw how wonderfully they could also be applied to clothing. The flow from the bottles is awesome-box included paintbrushes and a practice cloth to paint on.…

Is it waterproof

It's FABRIC paint. Sooner or later you're going to have to wash the item/clothing, so yes, makes sense that is would be waterproof!

Fabric 3D Paint Set is Fantastic!

…I find that I can even add two colors at once to the tapestry, lightly dip the paint brush in water and create the same blending effect on my cloth tapestry that I would on a regular art canvas! …I did not purchase these paints to create t-shirt designs so I cannot speak for that, but if they work this great on an old cloth tapestry, they should work great on t-shirts or other fabrics!…

Good paints

…Havent washed clothing yet, so will update.

Great product/great price!!

I order this product for my nephew who designs clothes.…

Great stuff looks good on my cloths.

Can't Work Without It And Needed More of It

…She adds this to her project and it gives a beautiful touch to her burping clothes.…

Would this work on polyester or cotton clothing?

Yes, this paint will adhere to both synthetic and cotton clothing. It will also adhere to other substrates like paper, plastic, and other hard surfaces.

Is the ink permanent?

Yes, the ink is permanent if you let it fully dry before washing the clothing item you painted.

Can I use this to make handprint t shirts? Is this permanent or will it wash off the t shirt?

It is permanent and should work fine for that kind of craft. I've applied it with a brush, fingers, and stencils and it works well and cleans off brushes and hands easily. Be careful when washing the clothes though, because while it stays fine in the washer, the paint will stick to itself and warp if it goes in a dryer.

Fantastic for making clothes more interesting

Perfect

…Washes well and paints on cloth effortlessly.

It works perfect with the freezer paper and it is really soft ...

I purchased this to try out freezer paper stencils on some baby clothes.…

Would this work if I put it on top of a printed design on a custom sweatshirt?

Its designed to be used on fabrics or clothes but when you are painting over a design you have to apply quite a few coats to prevent the design from showing through. Best to test it on a sample piece first if possible.

Is permanent color or comes out with the wash?” I have white shirts with stain that won't come out even w/bleach. Will this white fabric paint work

I use these paints on my clothes and wash them several times. These are permanent. Just leave the paint to air dry and wash the shirt after 3 days! Also there is instruction on the bottle. I find these fabric paint good quality for screen printing. I found only a problem when using paint brushes with these paints as they leave brush strokes. I think for you are good if you just want to use them to cover the stain.

A LITTLE THIN, BUT I FOUND A USE FOR IT; MAYBE YOU WILL TOO.

…I HAVE DONE LOTS OF PAINTING WITH SHOES, CLOTHES, JACKETS, AND ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T MOVE SO I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYBODY USES THIS BECAUSE IT IS SO THIN BUT I SEE SOME GOOD REVIEWS HERE SO I GUESS THERE ARE THOSE THAT DON'T MIND IT. WHEN I PAINTED LOADS OF CLOTHES, SHOES, ETC.…

Good colors

We painted the product onto Halloween costumes... you will have to do a thick covering of the paint to get it to actually glow... we did a thin coat and “charged” it under light and the more we added the better the glow... doesn’t glow longer then about a hour... after it had been dried and the clothes we painted were worn we washed the clothes.... the dryer made the paint peel up and get sticky and I could pull it off in sheets... a lot of paint for the price!

glow brightly under uv

…These will be fun for decorating clothing and in my situation cups for the party.

Is this a durable product to use?

Very durable. But wash the painted clothes in cold wash and hang on hangers from the washer.

Do these work on canvas "duck" fabric for patches?

Works on any cloth. It’s oretty sticky. When it hardens it’s on there good. I used them on infant socks to add more grip for my dog. Washed them inside out and they do just fine

Looks great but dries slowly

…Overall, looks great in backlight and on dark colored clothing.…

OK

…Haven't tried clothing yet.…

Made For Clothing Not Plastic

…She said this is more for clothing not plastic.…

Give yourself more then 4 hours dry time

…we used this paint to draw alien symbols on our clothes and bought a pack of UV blacklight flashlights.…

Better than I thought it would be.

…Do not know about cloth yet.)…

I bought these, I Love To Create Scribbles 3D Fabric Paint 1oz 20/Pkg because I use them on canvas, clothing and other art projects. … Wait 72 hours before washing if using on clothing.…

will this product work on cotton jersey?

I would say yes - altho I've only used it on doll clothes, but I've "up cycled" lots and lots of T-shirts and so forth and it's worked well. I've also used it on other fabrics that had a little stretch. I would imagine if you really stretched the jersey the paint could come off or crack, but dolls aren't quite as hard on their clothes are humans.

Works great, stays on- but squirts when using

This puffy paint has stayed on my child's clothes after multiple washes. The only downside is that when I was using it to design his clothes,certain more watery colors squirted a couple of times and messed up the design.

Great!

These fabric markers work great and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs to alter a piece of clothing.

Good quality

These worked great on the kid's cloth aprons that I purchased for daughter's art party.

How do these work for signing cotton onesies? Anyone used them for that?

I got these for a baby shower for people to decorate bibs, onesies, and burp clothes and they worked pretty well. They did bleed some, but not too horrible. I made a shirt to be signed for a guest book and it turned out pretty well.

Five Stars
