About Fabric Dye
Fabric Dye is made from a natural or synthetic substance and is designed to soak into and change the colour of fabric. Normally diluted with water, a material needs to be submerged into the fabric dye to get complete colour uniformity.
The downside to fabric dyes is that because they are soluble in water, any liquid spillages can displace the fabric dye. This effect can be reduced with the addition of a dye fixative, but these can also cause the fibres to stiffen.
Fabric Dye Application
The application method for fabric dyes also makes them more suited for changing the colour of fabrics at the manufacturing stage, rather than in the home. There are some fabric dye type products that can be used within the washing machine to help dye fabric clothes, but if you’re looking for a fabric dye to dye a fabric sofa, or other large item of fabric, you are better using our Fabric Paint.
To dye fabric, the colour of the fabric must be lighter in colour than the fabric dye you are using. You could dye a white fabric using black fabric dye, but you couldn’t dye a black fabric and hope to change the colour to white. The fabric must also be absorbent in order for the dye to properly penetrate into the fabric, so make sure to clean any fabric thoroughly before attempting to dye it.
About Fabric Paint
Fabric Paint on the other hand is designed for easier application onto fabrics already made into items; such as furniture and soft furnishings. They can be applied by brush, cloth or spray and used to restore or change the colour of fabric.
Unlike a fabric dye that soaks though the fibres to change the colour, the fabric paint coats each individual fibre, hiding the original colour. This means that you can get fabric paints in a much larger range of colours compared to fabric dyes.
Fabric Paint Application
The Fabric Paint can also be used as a fabric spray paint, and sprayed onto the fabric, however for best results we recommend applying it with a brush. Working the Fabric Paint into the fabric using a brush is an easy process, and you can change the colour of the fabric within just one or two applications of paint.
Once applied, a fabric paint will remain soft and flexible, with very little change to the texture of the fabric. This makes a fabric paint an extremely versatile product for restoring, or changing the colour of any type of fabric.
