Miracle Fix Liquid

Use Miracle Fix and you can Transfer Dye onto natural fabrics. Ideal for Patchworkers!

Using Transfer Dyes

These come in powder form, so are economical to use. They are best used on synthetics like polyester, vylene, viscose & synthetic velvets. If used on natural fabrics, such as wool and cotton, without Miracle Fix liquid, the results are not so good.

Mix approx. 1/2 tsp powder in a small plastic cup by sprinkling onto warm water. Mark your colour pots as they can be difficult to distinguish in liquid form. Don't worry if the colours look murky, the true colour is visible once ironed onto the fabric.

Paint your designs onto lightweight photo copy paper or layout pad, not forgetting that the design will come out as a 'mirror image'.

Let the paper dry - use hair dryer for speed. Place paper, design down, onto your fabric and iron - as hot as the fabric can stand. Move iron about to prevent scorching. To check if the image is transferred, peel off one corner first, carry on ironing, if OK remove paper.

This is now colour fast and can be washed by hand or machine.

There are many other ideas which are on the instruction leaflet which you receive when purchasing the dyes.
