Hi. I used acrylic paint and the mod podge method in my first attempt to silk screen. How long should I let the paint dry before .... doing whatever I should do. What should I do? iron? wash? Spray with something to get the paint to set in?
thank you. thank you. thank you, for your help.

I usually let acrylic paint dry for 12-24 hours and then you need to heat set it into the fabric. I use my iron with a thin towel or piece of fabric over the image. Remember no steam.

If you are using acrylic on fabric you should mix in fabric medium.  It isn't expensive.
