What makes a pen a fabric pen?

Fabric paint pens contain permanent color (Paint, dye, or ink). It makes the paint permanent on your cloth and helps to not fade with washing. Fabric paint markers come in many different colors that make your material colorful and do not come off after washing.

Size varieties in fabric markers

Fabric markers have many different sizes with thick and thin tips like painting brushes. The marker’s tip should be more delicate. It will help you make a thinner line easily on fabric. If you want to work on a wider line, don’t press the tip to make it wider it can damage the marker’s tip. You can tilt your pen slightly to create the line with the marker’s edge, not from the tip.

Selection of Fabric

The selection of fabric has a significant impact on how does your fabric marker works. If you take a rough cloth, it means your pens make lumps on it, and it will not look good. The delicate and smooth fabric is easier to work with. If you are not sure about the texture, you can test it before working, take a small piece of cloth, and paint on it. This method will not destroy your working material or painting.

Be careful not to make pauses during painting or do not stop the marker tip on the fabric as the marker can bleed on the cloth. If you are not sure what you are making, you should lift the marker off while you think about paint.

Paint with stencils

Fabric paint pens work well with stencils. If you want to outline, run the marker’s tip along with the edge of the stencil. After tracing, remove the stencil and color in it or fill the letter with different colors as you want.

Paint with stamps

If you want any tattoo with a stamp, it is a great idea to work with a stamp, and it’s a straightforward and quick method. Fabric markers work great on fabric with rubber stamps. The technique is too simple to add your required color on the stamp, turn your stamp and place it on cloth, press down the stamp forcefully the color comes off from the stamp onto the fabric, then let it dry completely.

Make sure to put color quickly on the stamp; the small stamps work ideally but if you are using a big stamp, place the color otherwise rapidly. Your color will get dry and will not give the result you want. You can use multiple colors on fabric as they will look good. After using one time, you can again use your stamp on your cloth but remember the second attempt. It will give a lighter result as there is a little color on it.

After the first attempt, please don’t place the stamp on the same area because it will not give you the same result and have a chance to make the print double.
