Create a floral blouse with the Marabu Textil Painter

Do you have an item of clothing in your wardrobe that fits you really well and suits you but just isn’t fashionable anymore? Try upcycling it and restyle it to give your old favourite a new, creative lease of life. We upcycled our blouse with a floral vine design. This was really easy and quick using the Marabu Textil Painter!

  • If the textile you have used is 100% cotton and there are no decorative objects (buttons, zips etc.) made from plastic or a similar material on it, then the paint can also be set in the oven. Heat the oven to 150 °C for this. Place the painted textile in the centre of the oven and set the paint in the oven for approx. 8 minutes. Then turn off the oven and remove the textiles from the oven.

How it is done:

  • Before adding any decoration, wash the blouse without fabric softener, then leave to dry and iron.

  • Restyle the collar by adding some individual floral vine designs. When creating your designs, add the branches so that they come into the image/onto the collar from the outside and are not evenly spaced. When painting the leaves, ensure that you leave a small area blank in the middle to give the leaves some more texture.
  • You can then also add floral designs to the cuffs in the same way.
  • Once the paint has dried (after about 30 minutes), you can iron the blouse to set the paint. You can achieve the best results by ironing the front, placing the design under a thin cotton cloth to do so: 3 minutes for each 30 x 30 cm area on a cotton temperature setting without steam.
  • Then the blouse is machine-washable at up to 60 °C.
