Will fabric be water resistant and machine washable after applying UNICORN SPiT Metallic?
Yes, fabric will retain much of the Unicorn SPiT color if treated before washing (see various methods below)*. For best results, wash in cold water by hand (with very little laundry detergent). Rinse with cold water. Various methods to increase the colorfastness of the Unicorn SPiT before washing are as follows:
Fabric Medium: Mix a Fabric Medium with Unicorn SPiT according to instructions on the Fabric Medium bottle.
Non-waterbased fabric protectant: Let Unicorn SPiT dry. Apply protectant. Allow to dry as indicated on product. Let set for 24 hours before washing.
Hair Dryer: Let Unicorn SPiT dry. Use hottest blow dryer setting to heat fabric until fabric is hot. Allow to cool back down to room temperature. Let set for 24 hours before washing.
Iron: Let Unicorn SPiT dry. Put iron on hottest setting (without moisture). Lay wax paper over fabric. Iron front and back of fabric until hot. Allow to cool back down to room temperature. Let set for 24 hours before washing.
Vinegar: Put fabric with dried Unicorn SPiT design in cold water/vinegar at a 1:1 ratio mix. Let set in vinegar for 24 hours. Rinse with cold water and a very small amount of laundry detergent immediately after removing from water/vinegar solution. Lay flat to dry.
Clothes dryer: Put fabric with dried Unicorn SPiT design in dryer for 1 hour on hottest setting. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature. Let set for 24 hours before washing.
NOTE: If a more washed-out look is desired: Let set for 24 hours before washing. Machine wash in gentle cycle with cold water. Machine dry if desired.
Can custom colors be created?
Yes. Mix Unicorn SPiT colors together to create your own special color OR mix most any water-based paint (chalk style or mineral based) with Unicorn SPiT to create custom colors.
Can I use UNICORN SPiT Metallic to tint epoxy resin?
Yes, use Unicorn SPiT as a tinting agent to add brilliant color to epoxy projects. Glaze Coat High Gloss Finish or Glaze Coat High Gloss CRAFT Resin is recommended. For all other brands, test before use. See instructions for more information.
