I’m a sucker for new or new-to-me products. This is one of those “I can’t believe this so I have to video it” type of tutorials. Anyway, here it is. Today I’m playing with Jacquard Puff Additive. It is amazing!
To get started you need your piece of fabric. (It can also be used on paper.) You also need screen printing ink. They recommend Jacquard, but I only had Versatex in my stash and it worked great. And you need the Jacquard Puff Additive. I’m using one of my thermofax screen designs you’ve seen before. You could use other screens or even stamps. Oh, maybe I need to try that! The fabric I’m using is a piece of the sun printed fabric from this post.
Next, we need to mix up to 20% of the puff additive to the screen painting ink. I just eye balled it.
Mix it up good and add to screen.
Now let’s print.
As you can see in the above picture, the screen printed images don’t look very dark. I was wondering if this was going to work.
I finished adding my design to the whole piece of fabric.
That looks okay, but not very impressive until I turned on the heat gun.
Since a still photo can not do this process justice, I had to make you a short video so you could watch the magic.
Here is the finished piece.
And a close up.
Now, I need to wait and let it air cure for 72 hours before washing. However, I don’t need to wash it so I guess in a couple days it will be ready!
Pretty cool don’t you think? It’s really kinda stinking cute. (That’s my new description of stuff I like!) What am I going to do with this fabric? I have no idea, but I like it much better now.
This is NOT a sponsored post. I did not receive the product or any compensation from Jacquard. It looked so cool that I wanted to share it with you. Thanks for dropping by.
That was fun to watch! Thaks!

Halle, Thanks! It is so cool.
Hi Lisa, It is fun to watch. It’s kind of unbelievable!!
Too cute! What kind of durability would be expected? I would like to try on t-shirts, but I’m always leery of specialty paints, because they tend to not hold up under frequent laundering. But now you have forced me to go out to the garage and find my heat gun! Nice tutorial and the video really shows the transformation beautifully!
Judy, I was thinking the very same thing. I’m not sure it would hold up to many washings. I guess I’d just use it for wall hangings – things that won’t get too much wear. I even wonder if they’d hold up on journal covers. Might be something to ask my new chemist friend! The video is the only way to show the magic. So cool! Thanks for dropping by and commenting.
