Marabu Textile Print is the professional textile printing ink for relief and screen printing

It is water-based, odourless, saliva-resistant and light-fast as well as washable up to 40 °C.

Print it like a Pro!” the printing of textile fabric is complex, as it requires special paints and treatment. Textile Print has been developed specifically for relief and screen printing techniques on textiles. It is highly viscous and is particularly slow-drying, which is crucial to prevent roller streaks in relief printing, and to prevent the woven mesh from sticking together in screen printing. This produces a perfect printing result with homogeneously applied ink and no overlaps. The matt printing ink in 7 brilliant colours impresses with its soft finish. It is suitable for light-coloured and dark fabrics free from finishes and fabric conditioners (max. 20% synthetic fibre). After drying, fix in the oven (8 minutes/150 °C) or iron without steam for 3 minutes.

Lino printing technique with Marabu Textile Print – Quick and effective printing and reproduction of textiles with the relief printing technique – this can be achieved with a careful combination of high-quality paints, user-friendly tools and resources. Create your own range of motifs and thus realise designs that were unthinkable before then.

Individual motifs are transferred to the soft printing plate using transfer paper and pencil and then edited with the cutting tool. In relief printing, the printing parts are raised. The V-shaped gouge is good for thin lines, whereas the large flat cutter can be used to cut wide lines and large areas. Due to its softness, the soft printing plate is particularly easy to cut and machine. The motif is printed as a mirror image. This is especially important when working with letters. Textile Print is rolled onto the elevations of the printing plate evenly thin using the foam roller and then cleanly printed onto the fabric. Simply clean the printing plate afterwards with water or use it for a new printing process. The motif can be reproduced and your own design can be produced in series. With Textil Aquarelle, the print can later be coloured and designed further – a possible application only with Marabu!

Relief Printing Set Soft Linol Textile Print & Colouring – the set combines two techniques, relief printing and watercolour, which makes it unique on the market.

Screen printing technique with Marabu Textil Print – whether it’s for a girl’s night in, hen or stag night, band shirt, festival or school leaving shirt print fabrics without any hassle for all kinds of occasions! Once the design has been created, it can be printed several times. Screen printing involves forcing the printing ink through a finely woven mesh onto the fabric using a squeegee. In the areas of the fabric where no ink is to be transported, the mesh openings of the fabric are made impermeable to ink by means of a paper template. After drying, the ink is fixed in the oven (8 minutes/150 °C) or through ironing without steam for 3 minutes. After cleaning with water, the frame can be used for further prints.

Marabu Textil Aquarelle is the new, ultra-brilliant textile paint for the watercolour technique

Watercolours are now not only possible on paper, but also on fabric! The new water-based paint type Marabu Textil Aquarelle is a pigmented watercolour with excellent gradation and a high yield.

The 6 brilliant colours in a 15 ml jar can be mixed and diluted with water. The paint is suitable for light-coloured fabrics free from finishes and fabric conditioners (max. 20% synthetic fibre). It is odourless, saliva-resistant and light-fast, and the designed textiles are soft to the touch. With the beautiful gradations and pastel colours, Textil Aquarelle is perfect for creating playful and charming designs on textiles. The range includes applications from clothing and shirts to accessories for the home. The water-colour backgrounds are also ideally suited to individual hand letterings with the textile painters.

Place the fabric on a smooth, non-absorbent surface, secure if necessary with masking tape and moisten slightly. Use the wet brush to apply the watercolour onto the fabric. Two painting techniques can be used: washing (wet-on-wet painting) or glazing (painting over the already dried layers of paint).

For drying and fixing, place the damp motif flat on baking paper and then in the oven (8 minutes / 150 °C). The watercolour can then be further designed with the Textil Painter and fixed again. Washable up to 40 °C.
