Painting Butterfly Wings for an Ice Skating Team
  • I am hoping to paint multiple sets of wings for my daughter's ice skating team. I have over 50 yards of FREE fabric -- so I would like to use it! -- but I am not sure of the content. I know that it is a synthetic metallic, very lightweight fabric. I would like to paint on it and have the final result be flexible and permanent. Ironing 25 sets of wings will be too time consuming. Is there a product I can use, or do I need to order wings on Amazon and abandon the whole project? I am curious as to whether or not the Pinata paints would work? Which of the paints work with the Air Set? Many questions! Thanks for any input!
  • Hi Karry,

    Dye-Na-Flow is going to be your go-to paint with this fabric. It is very light bodied and transparent and will work on any fabric so content is not an issue. You can use the AirFix product with the Dye-Na-Flow removing the need to heat set each pair.
