Tulip 17581 Dimensional Metallic Fabric Paint is a paint specifically designed for fabric. It comes in both purple and blue shades as well as other colors that are available, with the color you choose depending on how colorful you want your project to be. Newbies, experts, and those who just want to spice up their existing projects should all find something they love about this product.
The purple shade of the paint is suitable for use on different fabrics including cotton and linen so it’s perfect for general projects such as clothes and bags which can range anywhere from casual to dressy or formal. The paint retains a metallic sheen which makes it ideal when creating reflective surfaces like mirrors or ceilings of a room.
The blue shade is quite similar to the purple shade. It too retains a metallic sheen and the color can be used on different fabrics. However, unlike purple, blue is best suited for lighter-colored fabrics as it tends to show up darker on darker fabrics. It’s also recommended that you use the blue shade on less porous fabrics such as silk, otherwise you’ll end up with a textured or dimpled surface.
Both shades have a higher sheen than typical fabric paints. The shininess and metallic sheen are caused by the formulation of the paint and different ingredients. The shininess of both paints can be comparable to any other metallic paints available in the market. The shiny surface can be more reflective than before, depending on what color you choose to work with. This shininess can give your fabric a nice smooth and polished look, especially if you are creating a wall hanging.
The paint will indeed make the fabric appear brighter and more vivid. However, this is mainly due to the metallic sheen and its surface quality of it. In addition to this, the paint will give off a deeper and richer shade on the fabrics. So choosing your color depending on what kind of outcome you want and how many colors you want is important.

I’m NINERS 94 wife, and I ordered these fabric paints. I love them. I’m working on a project to add color to my fabric living room chairs which have a kind of tapestry. It’s a bit of a tropical theme but the manufacturer skimped on coloring the tapestry in. After using the crystal paint on the chair, I let it dry overnight and tested it the next day. I was worried the sparkles might come off but that didn’t happen at all.
Tulip is definitely the best paint for fabric.
Worked great for a shirt my daughter had to make for the “100th day of school” it looked awesome!!!

These colors were great. Love the sparkle. I didn’t read fully and realize that they were sheer, but that was my fault. We just needed to paint a solid layer under them for the project we were on. 🙂 Kids loved them!

Easy to use. Results great. Washed with no problems.Wish I could buy white crystals in a larger bottom or just be able to purchase it by itself
My daughters are obsessed with YouTube diy videos and I got this to help with their crafts. Easy for my kids to use and not super messy. Dries great and was able to watch the shirts they made and nothing came off. Will buy more.
