Marabu TextilDesign is an acrylic-based decorative spray for fabrics. After drying, it has limited wash-resistance up to 30°C (delicate wash only, inside out). Colorspray allows you to make decorative designs and lettering quickly (with or without template) on practically any fabric found on, for instance, furniture, curtains, napkins or clothing. This spray can be applied to both light and dark fabrics but it should be noted that it will have a more matte and pale appearance the darker the intended fabric is. Spraying of multiple coats increases the coverage – but too much paint can lead to a hardening of the surface of the fabric.
Please also note that this paint should not be fixed and is therefore not suitable for use on clothing worn regularly.
Treatment: Shake the can for 2 minutes before using and hold it vertically when spraying. It is recommended that it be held at a distance of 3 to 5 cm when making lettering, doing freehand designs or stencilling; the spraying distance should be 15 to 20 cm for larger areas. After use, turn the can upside down and spray until valve is empty.
Aerodecor spray paint and Marabu Buntlack Spray are pigmented lacquers that contain solvents and have acrylic resin-based binders. After about 10 minutes, the satin-matte coat of film will be dust-dry - when completely dry it is weather resistant.
The two sprays are different from one another in the nature of their sprays: The Aerodecor Spray has a somewhat finer mist than the Marabu Buntlack, with the result that the latter is smoother after drying. The Aerodecor is for this reason the more popular for model making purposes. Both paints adhere well to dry, dust-free and grease-free surfaces like those of cardboard, paperboard, plastic, wood, glass, stone, metal, clay and various natural materials.
While Marabu Buntlack is, according to the manufacturer, compatible with polystyrene, the Aerodecor should first be tested before being applied to rigid foam materials because it can indeed have a corrosive effect. As a basic rule for polystyrene, all spray paints should be applied in many thin coats from an appreciable distance because the propellant alone can often be the cause of damage to polystyrene foam. To be safe, preliminary tests should simply be made before every application.
When finished, the spray can should be turned upside-down and further sprayed until only the propellant without paint is emitting. This will prevent the can from leaking and the nozzle from becoming blocked.
