The tutorial above demonstrates how to paint on fabric using Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow Paint which is a fabric paint that acts like a dye. Dye-Na-Flow paint is one of my favorite paints because the colors blend so easily together just like dye, and all it requires to set it is to iron it. You can see here on my blog how I like to create painted texture on my fabrics.
This video demonstrates how to use Dye-Na-Flow Paint with a different type of resist.
