Heat transfer paints were originally developed for printing synthetics and they have become established as one of the leading printing products for achieving depth of colour. The method of designing on paper has become enormously popular with textile designers as they are able to hone their designs before printing the finished item. However designers who like to work on natural fibres have not, until now, been able to achieve the same finish on their work as those working on synthetics. The introduction of Pre-Fixer has changed all this.
Colourist Pre-Fixer is easy to use. It is simply brushed or sprayed onto the surface of the chosen fabric and allowed to dry. Drying times vary according to the amount of liquid used but about an hour in most cases. The drying process can be speeded up using a heat gun or spreading the fabric on a radiator.
