Instructions

Step 1
Prewash napkin. Dry fabric and if needed, iron out wrinkles without using a spray starch.

Step 2
Lay napkin on a clean surface. Position silkscreen designs on corners or where desired and tape to fabric.

Step 3
Mix 1 part Martha Stewart Crafts™ Tintable Fabric Medium to 2 parts Martha Stewart Crafts™ Acrylic Craft Paint. Mix on a foam plate. Pick up paint with squeegee and draw down through screen.

Step 4
Carefully lift screen and remove it. Before repeating design, thoroughly wash and dry between use.

Step 5
Repeat process with remaining areas of napkin. Allow to dry 24 hours then heat set. Two heat setting methods are recommended:

Dryer Method –

Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.

Iron Method –
Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth. Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used. Place dry iron (no steam) on area, pressing for 30 seconds. Lift iron, moving to another area until all sections are heat set.

Tips

It is always best to hand wash in cold water and line dry items that are hand painted to increase durability. If washing by machine, turn garments inside out and use cold water in mild detergent on a gentle cycle.
