Using textile paint on dark fabrics
Most textile paints show up best on light colours, but what if you want to personalise items that have a darker fabric? Talens Art Creation developed a product for just that purpose: Textile Opaque! These super vivid colours have great coverage that shows up on even the darkest of fabrics. Create a fun pattern on your dark fabric items using simple items such as a fork, like we show in this video, or create your own design using stamps or a brush.
Have fun experimenting and share your finished work with #RoyalTalens!

About Talens Art Creation Textile Opaque
Talens Art Creation Textile Opaque is a fabric paint especially developed for darker fabrics. Available in 10 vibrant colours that show up even on black fabrics, unlike normal textile paints. 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.
