Fabric colours
Painting on fabric requires a technique able to swing from the lightness and transparency of silk to the cottony thickness of felt or wool. Tints of this type have to produce transparency as well as coverage and solidity. The iridescent effects of certain fabrics can be obtained with pearly, iridescent or fluorescent tones expressly designed to work in contrast or accord with the sensual surface of a soft material. Fifty water-based tints, ready to use on any fabric with any brush, with maximum resistance and durability through time.

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
