apparelDid you know that you can make your own custom clothes with liquid Latex? Liquid Latex may be used to coat almost anything, but it is not removable from fabric materials.

When using liquid latex on fabric, the liquid latex will seep through the material. The latex will adhere very firmly, so using liquid latex on fabric will be permanent. When working on a tee shirt / dress / hoodie / skirt / tights, or whatever you can come up with, insert some cardboard to protect any fabric you do not want to be painted, and mask off areas you wish o leave unpainted on your working surface.

To make an image on fabric with liquid latex, you can splatter it, dip it, or paint with a sponge or stencil brush. Using bristled brushes is not recommended as it can leave brush marks, and even loose bristles in your final products.

Ensure you thoroughly coat the areas that you want to be painted. Let is saturate the material you are working on and dry completely before adding a new coat. Some fabrics will take the paint better than others, you can experiment with scraps from your local sewing store. Streaks or runs in the paint will be apparent in you finished design so make sure your paint is evenly applied. Stretchy materials may need to be stretched prior to/ during painting to avoid gaps and pulls in your design.

Applying at least 2 coats is best, it will give a solid appearance and a professional ‘sheen’. Before using any latex paint on any item we strongly recommend that you test a small area to see how the paint will perform on that type of surface.
