Glamorous entrance – Jacket with Fashion Shimmer
Marabu Fashion Shimmer transforms a simple, plain dark-blue jacket into an individually styled fashion piece with a unique sparkly shimmering effect.
Before spraying, wash the fabric (maximum 20 % synthetic fibre content) without fabric conditioner to remove any finishes. Leave to dry and, if possible, iron flat. Completely cover the worktop with plastic film and protect your clothes.
How it is done:
Shake the Fashion Shimmer paints before spraying to distribute the shimmering particles evenly throughout the bottle. First design the sleeves: Insert plastic drinking bottles into the sleeves and roll up the fabric over the bottles to create deep folds. Spray with Gold Fashion Shimmer before removing the bottles. Allow the paint to dry or blow dry with a hair-dryer.
Use Silver Shimmer to spray the lapels and pockets of the jacket free hand. Then use cardboard or film to cover/mask the areas that are not to be sprayed. Place a piece of cardboard or paper into the pockets to prevent the paint from seeping through to the back. Once dry, decorate the flaps of the pockets and the inside of the collar with the Floral Pattern silhouette stencil and Gold Shimmer to obtain an attractive mix of patterns.
To fix: either iron the front of the kaftan through a thin cloth or a sheet of baking paper for 3 minutes on a non-steam cotton setting or fix in a pre-heated oven for 8 minutes at 150 °C. Check the heat resistance of the fabric first. The fabric can then be washed at up to 40 °C. Wash and iron inside out.
Remove the Fashion Shimmer spray nozzle after spraying and clean with water to make sure that no spray paint can clog up the spray nozzle.
