Even if the fruit bowl made of a crocheted doily or discarded jeans is perhaps not everyone's cup of tea: The example clearly shows what the textile hardener can do to stiffen fabric, namely: to stiffen absorbent textiles such as wool, silk, cotton, and jute in such a way that their shape or a pleat is "frozen." The hardened molds remain permanently as hard as sheet metal, are weather and water-resistant, and even dishwasher-safe up to 40°C.
Processing: Fill the required amount of textile hardener into a plastic container and dip your fabric into the transparent liquid. Wring it out, submerge it again, and wring it out again. Then hang the fabric, either to dry or to place it over a mold with a smooth surface. During the 6-8 hour drying time, you can reshape your parts at any time.
For feather-light sculptures or objects, place pieces of fabric or strips soaked in textile hardener on a wire base, for example. After curing, the surface can be painted with acrylic paints, among other things. The colorless fabric strengthener is odorless after curing and free of harmful substances.
Attention: Please do not mix the liquid with water or paints, as the stiff material will clump and become unusable.
