Specialty paint for your special projects
Traditional art paints are extremely versatile, however, there are still many craft pursuits where you might need a specific finish or you're painting a material where only a purpose-made paint will do the job - think glass, home furnishings and interior decor objects, and fabrics such as cotton, silk and synthetics.
While fabric paint and regular acrylics are both water-based, fabric paint differs in its ability to bond tightly to fabrics. Fabric paint is perfect for giving plain-dye t-shirts, tote bags and textile projects - cushions and pillows, wall hangings, bed linen, and throw rugs and blankets - some decorative touches.
Often, fabric paint needs some help from a hairdryer or steam press to complete the bonding process.
Like fabric paint, glass paint is designed to form a much tighter bond with a glass surface than regular acrylic paint so your glass artwork will last longer. Popular glass painting projects are colouring frosted windows, drinking glasses and storage or mason jars.
A good tip to bear in mind with glass painting is to let your brush glide over the surface. The thicker the coat of paint you lay down, the more it will level off and reduce the number of brushstrokes needed.
Popular with home crafters and DIY fans for its versatility and 'chalky' finish, chalk paint is an ultra-matte acrylic that requires minimal surface prep work and gives home décor projects - picture and mirror frames, dining tables, candleholders, vases and side tables - that unmistakably 'aged' and 'shabby chic' look.
