Add reflective elements to your backpack with textile paint
Looking for a fun, creative and easy indoor activity? How about personalising a backpack? In this video we show you how you can add Talens Art Creation Textile Paint in the colour Reflex to a dark-coloured backpack to create a nice reflective effect. We used tape and stencils for a more polished look, but you can also use a brush if you feel like designing your own patterns.
Let us know if you try out this idea by sharing your results using #RoyalTalens!

About Talens Art Creation Textile
Talens Art Creation Textile is an extensive range of textile paints for light-coloured fabrics (at least 50 % cotton), available in a range of 40 colours. These colours include pearlescent colours and Reflex, a reflecting textile paint (also for dark-coloured textile) and Nightlight for a glow-in-the-dark effect. Before use, wash the textile without fabric softener. Decorate the textile with a sponge or soft brush and after drying for 30 minutes fix by ironing (on cotton setting) with a sheet of grease-proof paper between your work and ironing board.
Textile paint is great for interior decorations on cushions, furniture and curtains as well as for personalising clothes or other fashion items.
