I painted an ice cream on my pants!



Close up of top:


Ice cream deliciousness:


I used some random acirlic (sp?) paints that I found around my house. I'm going to have to handwash it all now, because it'll wash out if I throw it in the washer and dryer. Does anyone know how to prevent this? Like a spray or somehting I can use to make it permenent? Thanks

if they are craft paint acrylics, they shouldnt come off in the wash. i have plenty of clothing with accidental and on purpose craft acrylic on them.

you could also turn them inside out and wash them on the gentle or lingerie setting. add fabric medium next time.. it helps the paint stay and not be stiff

You need to iron the painted part before washing the pants to set the acrylic paint. I suggest, since it is a pant leg.... Lay pants so image is flat and put an old towel or t-shirt over the painted part and iron onto the old towel or t-shirt. You also should put something in the pant leg to keep it from adhering to the back of the pants. This could be a small piece of fabric or even some cardboard paper. Point is you want it flat and you should not iron directly onto the paint. You don't want to set any crinkles!  Smiley

Def. hand wash and put them in the dryer. This will continue to set the painting.

I have done this many times and it always works for me. I found out that I should iron from a popular acrylic paint website (Liquitex).

There was a little fading for me, but not much. Sorry if my instructions are confusing...  Undecided

They are very cute!

They are make for general facepaint, which means they wash off extremely easily. But your ideas are good. I'll try to find some fabric meduim. Thanks much. Cheesy

Mmm when i paint on fabric, i use a spray to protect shoes against water on it ^^
And/or i add glue to my acrylic so it stays longer.

(nice ice creams btw  Tongue)
