Thursday, September 28, 2017

Screen printing is a brilliant way to make the most of your hand drawn designs.

Using Textile Foil with a Thermofax

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Textile Foil is a brilliant way to bring more vibrancy to your fabrics. It's available in a wide range of colours and is easy to apply using Foil Adhesive. It's even washable! In this project, we have applied the Foil Adhesive using a Custom Thermofax Screen. A thermofax is like a small silk screen that can be made with your own designs.
