Fabric painting is a simple way to print your own fabric. With paints and a brush, you can conjure up beautiful designs, textures and patterns on your otherwise plain fabric, transforming it into a work of art. Check out this video on how to use GAC 900 Fabric Painting Medium by Golden for greater control in fabric painting. GAC 900 can be blended with various acrylic colors to produce fabric paints that can be applied by hand with a brush, airbrushed, or silkscreened.

Happy National Tie-Dye Day!
Yes, they do have a day for everything now. But this isn’t some craven marketing gimmick (no, really). National Tie-Dye Day is a celebration of color, improvisation, individuality, expression and the fabric arts. It’s not just something you wear bc it’s laundry day, and it’s not just for hippies anymore. These days tie-dye is all over the fashion runways and street-style stars are jumping on board that train (which smells like patchouli, btw but it’s ok bc free love).
Throughout the month of May, we’re taking a deep dive into all the artistic things we can do with textiles (like tie-dye!) and putting it on sale. Jacquard Acid Dye, iDye, Procion MX, Indigo, and Basic Dyes are all 25% off. Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow? 25% off. Oh you’re looking for Jacquard Textile Paints? Also 25% off.

So get inspired by the deep indigos of shibori, camouflage, jewel tones, classic groovy or funky spirals and, like they say on Project Runway, “Make it work!”
