How to use Tulip Soft® Fabric Paint


1. Prewash fabric before painting to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener. 2. Shake bottle well. 3. Insert shirtboard or cardboard between layers of fabric. 4. Apply one to two coats of paint, allowing to dry between coats. 5. Dry flat 4 hours. 6. For Velveteen finish only: With iron on steam setting, hold iron 1/2" above painted surface until paint appears textured (avoid over steaming). 7. Wait 72 hours before washing. Wash in warm water, gentle cycle with mild soap; line dry. Clean up with soap and water. Do not dry clean.
