Application Techniques

Using Chalk Couture ink on fabric is easy, but there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure the best results. Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting started:

  1. Choose your fabric: As mentioned, Chalk Couture ink can be used on a variety of fabrics. You can use any fabric, but it’s best to choose a cotton or linen fabric as they tend to work well with Chalk Couture. The smoother the fabric the better the results will be.
  2. Prepare your surface: Lay your fabric flat on a smooth, hard surface, like a table or counter. Place the fabric on a Chalk Couture Ink Mat or a protective sheet underneath to prevent any bleeding or smudging. The Chalk Couture Ink mat is great because it has adhesive on it which helps the fabric stay in place while you work with it.
  3. Apply the Chalk Couture Transfer: Remove the transfer from the white backer sheet and place it on the fabric.
  4. Apply the ink: Dip the squeegee into the jar of Chalk Couture ink and apply it to your fabric in smooth, even strokes. You can use multiple of colors of ink. If you choose to blend the fabrics you may want to test on another piece of fabric to see how the colors blend.
  5. Remove the transfer: Carefully lift the Chalk Couture transfer off your fabric to reveal your design before the ink dries. Make sure your hands are clean so you don’t accidentally get ink where you don’t want it.
  6. Heat-set the ink: To make the design permanent, you will need to heat-set the ink. Once you have inked the fabric let it completely dry. I normally let it dry for 24 hours before I heat-set it.
    • Option 1:  Use a handheld clothing iron and parchment paper to make the design permanent. Place the parchment paper over the design and iron over the parchment paper for four minutes. Make sure to move the iron so it doesn’t burn the fabric. Repeat the steps on the back. 
    • Option 2: Use the Cricut heat press and parchment paper. Heat the heat press to 305 degrees, place the parchment paper over the design, and place the heat press on the design for 30 sec. Repeat the steps for the back. 
  7. Clean the transfer: Use cold / warm water to remove the ink from the transfer. Let the transfer dry with the sticky side up. Once it is dry place the white backer sheet back on the sticky and shiny sides go together. You can reuse the Chalk Couture stencil 10 – 12 times. I normally am able to use it more with proper care.

Care Instructions

Once the fabric is heat set use the care instructions of the fabric.
