Setacolor is a range of concentrated heat fixed
colours for decorating fabrics. Particularly vivid
and bright, Setacolor colours can be used to paint,
stain or print natural or synthetic fibers. After
fixing with an iron, they are perfectly resistant to
washing and dry cleaning and the fabric retains all
of its suppleness.
Opaque colours: opaque and covering, vivid and intense.
Colours can be mixed together. Excellent lightfastness.
Shimmering colours: opaque and covering, glittering and
with iridescent effects. Colours can be mixed together.
Transparent colours: transparent, bright and vivid.
Colours can be mixed together. Excellent lightfastness.

two possibilities : with an iron (cotton position), for
5 minutes, on the reverse side of the fabric; in the oven,
for 5 minutes at 150 °C (300 °F) (stabilized temperature).
after fixing, the colours resist machine washing at 40 °C
(100 °F) and dry cleaning.
Setacolor colours can be used on all fabrics, fine or
heavy: cotton, wool, velvet, non-woven and even leather.
Ready to use, intense and concentrated, they are used pure
or diluted with water to obtain watercolour effects.
Setacolor colours are suitable for various techniques.
Vivid and bright, the Setacolor Opaque colours have
an exceptional covering power to decorate both dark or light
coloured fabrics. Their rich texture is especially suited
for brush work, stencil work and even silkscreen printing.
The new Setacolor Shimmering Opaque colours are
particularly spectacular! Their rich and deep shades are
glittering and have a subtle brightness with changing
effects depending on the light. It is not recommended to
dilute the shimmering colours in order to keep their
The Setacolor transparent colours are suitable for
all techniques to decorate light coloured fabrics. Though
lighter in texture than the Setacolor opaque range, they are
perfectly suited for brush work, stencil work or silkscreen
printing, and are especially appropriate for diluted
techniques. The Setacolor transparent paints are
light-sensitive and can therefore be used to obtain
remarkable effects with sunlight (2 parts water for one part
colour). Setacolor can be applied on fabric free of
sizing and the decorated fabrics keep their suppleness. To
fix the Setacolor colours, iron on the reverse side
of the decorated fabric for 3 minutes on cotton position. It
is also possible to put the fabric in a kitchen oven : 5
minutes at 150 °C (300 °F) and the colours are fixed. Once
fixed, the designs resist machine washing and dry cleaning.

|FAQ's from Pebeo
Is it necessary to wash the fabric before starting to paint ? If it
is new, it is absolutely necessary. The new fabrics are impregnated
with sizing, which prevents the paint from penetrating the fibers.
Do the colours go through the fabric ? Yes they do. Think of
protecting your work plans with a plastic or a waxed canvas.
Is it normal that the opaque Setacolor colours slightly darken when
drying ? Yes. We suggest that you make tests before starting. For
this reason, the mixes of colours are delicate to reproduce, so keep
them in airtight jars in between each use.
How to fix colours that are directly applied on a lamp shade ? Since
it is hard to fix such an object, you can do it in the oven (5
minutes at 150 °C or 300 °F). You can always use a hair dryer.
How come rings have formed on the flat areas painted with colour ?
The Setacolor colours can be fluidified with water, but not more
than 50%, because they will cause such problems.
How to lighten the colours ? The clear coupure allows you to create
lighter shades without thinning or fluidifying the paint.
How to erase a stain ? The Setacolor paint is tenacious, so clean
immediately stains with soapy water.
With which other products can Setacolor be used ? Combine the
Setacolor colours to the other Pebeo fabric products : Brod'Express,
Pebeo Star, Setaskrib
Can we make batiks with Setacolor ? Yes. Setacolor is particularly
suitable for this technique. Use liquid wax to create reserves, then
apply the colour. To eliminate the wax, iron the fabric by placing
it in between two sheets of newspaper.
Can "tie and dye" be realized with Setacolor ? Yes, absolutely. You
only have to tie your fabric, then impregnate certain parts of it
with the colours of your choice, which were previously diluted.
Allow to dry a whole day, then untie an dfix.
What is the sun technique ? On humid and diluted transparent
Setacolor colours, put objects of your choice (leaves, branches,
plastic forms...). Lay the fabric out flat wise in the sun or under
infrared lamps. Once the fabric is dry, remove the objects : the
Can the salt technique be used with Setacolor ? This technique works
very well with the transparent Setacolor colours. On humid colours,
sprinkle fine or large grains of salt. The areas, that come in
contact with the grains, are where retraction of the colour appear.
Allow to dry, then remove
