2023-08-30 New Publications: Painting fabrics and a filet pattern sheet


M-PR004 Fabric Decoration with Paintex
Small softcover booklet, copyrighted 1926. 24 pages. Paintex is described as a fabric paint that does not spread on the fabric, but also doesn’t stiffen the fabric as most paints would. Additionally Paintex Liquid Embroidery is described, a plastic paste used to outline designs and finish fabric edgings, to be colored with Paintex Metallic Powder. Many examples of how this decoration can be used for household objects and small gifts.
