more fabric painting

By spotogspindel | May 15, 2013

One of the absolutely coolest fabric colors, is the thermo-crome-colors. The name gives a hint 😉 These colors are magical! See below: I´ve made a fern-herat print in neon-pink. Over this I´ve printed with magenta thermo-crome. (Both samples on different stretch-materials)


After it´s dry, I fixate it in this big heat-press. (Guess what I want for Christmas?!? ;-))


You can see the pink heart under the pink paint under my hand.


But watch what happens when I remove my hand!:

Wow! A handprint!


But seriously, isn´t this fascinating?! There is a lot of chemistry involved in the process. This binder is simply made to react at a certain temperature, just around the body temperature, so it changes colors. Uber-cool, of you ask me!

    Very cool — so does the handprint stay or fade when your hand moves away? Every parent of a teen age daughter will want this fabric before they send their child out on a date, lol.

    Ha, ha, ha… no. As the temperature changes back to room temperature, the color comes back. 🙂
