Deco Art Ink Effects


Ink Effects are fabric transfer inks that absorb into the fabric for soft, flexible, and washable transfers. Simply paint your design on standard copy paper then use an iron to transfer it onto a light colored wearable or home décor fabric piece of your choice.

Recently I was sent the new Ink Effects by DecoArt to play with and I have to say I loved the end results. At first I was a little hesitant but after seeing the magic I was sold!

The first project I tackled was some dish towels. For the last few weeks I have been searching for some striped towels.  Random… yes, but I have not been able to find them anywhere. So, what’s a girl to do??  Well like any DIY girl would, I decided to make my own. I did not want them to look like they had been painted and was thrilled with the ink effects end results.

Ink Effects  really is so easy to use. All you do is paint your design (you can get creative) on a piece of paper. Once the paper is dry, you iron your design (paint side down) onto fabric of your choice. You can view a video tutorial here.

I should of snapped a better shot of the towel… but I love the end result.  I think I may need to make one in every color now. :)

  1. What a great product! I can’t wait to show my daughter. She just paid $40 to get a hoodie with her name on it! We could have done it at home for much less!

  2. What a neat product. I’ll have to try it sometime. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for the shout out! I really love how your towel turned out–great idea!

  4. Want to try it but have checked a couple of places. No one carries it!

    • It is impossible to find in Georgia!!! If this product is so wonderful why craft retailers in Georgia are not carrying it?
