I’m a sucker for new or new-to-me products. This is one of those “I can’t believe this so I have to video it” type of tutorials. Anyway, here it is. Today I’m playing with Jacquard Puff Additive. It is amazing!
To get started you need your piece of fabric. (It can also be used on paper.) You also need screen printing ink. They recommend Jacquard, but I only had Versatex in my stash and it worked great. And you need the Jacquard Puff Additive. I’m using one of my thermofax screen designs you’ve seen before. You could use other screens or even stamps. Oh, maybe I need to try that! The fabric I’m using is a piece of the sun printed fabric from this post.
Next, we need to mix up to 20% of the puff additive to the screen painting ink. I just eye balled it.
Mix it up good and add to screen.
Now let’s print.
I finished adding my design to the whole piece of fabric.
That looks okay, but not very impressive until I turned on the heat gun.
Since a still photo can not do this process justice, I had to make you a short video so you could watch the magic.
Here is the finished piece.
And a close up.
Now, I need to wait and let it air cure for 72 hours before washing. However, I don’t need to wash it so I guess in a couple days it will be ready!
Pretty cool don’t you think? It’s really kinda stinking cute. (That’s my new description of stuff I like!) What am I going to do with this fabric? I have no idea, but I like it much better now.
This is NOT a sponsored post. I did not receive the product or any compensation from Jacquard. It looked so cool that I wanted to share it with you. Thanks for dropping by.
