Fabric paints come in many forms, there are pots of paints or squeezable tubes. The colour or pigment is usually mixed with a glue-like binding medium and can either be painted or brushed on to material, or can be squeezed and made into 3d shapes on fabric. Usually hot iron fixing is needed to permanently fix the colour to your fabric this also makes the colours last for longer. Most commonly used to be creative with clothing, fabric paint can also be used on bags, decorative table wear, housewares and even some furniture. Provided the material you will be using will be accepting of fabric paint, it really is a blank canvas to create on.
