do they bleed? Jun 22, 2013
They sometimes bleed if you use 2 colors beside each other before it dries. I use the sharpies with watered down acrylics as well, and again, if my acrylic area is not dry, the sharpie will bleed into that area. If your work area is completely dry, they don't bleed. Definitely protect whatever surface you are working on though. Hope this helps. Downside of these, they run out of ink pretty quick.
I'm halfway through a complex art piece on a machine-washable 100% Polyester shower curtain liner (don't ask) that I prewashed. Will the ink wash off? Oct 29, 2013
My project was on a cotton t-shirt and has faded with washing. Polyester probably will be a little different but to make it as colorfast as you can, I would advise pressing with a warm iron before washing. Also when using dye, it helps make items colorfast to soak in vinegar and let dry before use or washing. Good luck!
Sorry, but not well at all. If you find a fabric marker that does show up well on black fabric, please let me know.
Will these work well on cotton that has been quilted. I am quilting and I need a way of doing very small additions in addition to embroidery. May 17, 2014
If you are referring to a pillow quilt, it will work but use light pressure, a more heavy firm quilt will work best. Pillow quilt could allow for the ink to spread if not used with light pressure because of the fabric being thinner. I have found that this are best on Cotton, Rayon, and Polyester.
How is Stained compare to regular sharpies? Mar 3, 2014
They compare about the same as a regular sharpie compares to painting with a tube of paint and a brush. These sharpies are really more like a paint pen that allows you to paint with their felt tip instead of a brush. Whereas the regular sharpie is more like a die transferred with their tip, these are more like paint. They are more opaque than the pens are when you apply them, especially to fabric. I hope this helps.
I have been using the Stained by Sharpie Fabric markers. Bold colors. The light colors such as yellow do not show up on black but that's to be expected because these are not paints.
I'm looking for good markers to use in Johanna Basford's coloring books, ones that won't bleed through. Are these good? 11 days ago
these are fabric markers and they will bleed through
