I have recently used the aloe vera gel with the garden variety fabric paints from Michaels'/ Hobby Lobby and then thinned them with water also. It works like a charm and the fabric remained quite soft. I started fabric painting over 20-some years ago. I only used what I could buy locally, using both fabric and acrylic. These items have gone through the wash some very many times and they remain in rather remarkable shape. I believe the common fabric paints and acrylics are very similar in their composition. the acrylic paints are thicker though. I will post a Christmas Bear sweatshirt I did over 20 years ago to my profile. It is still in good shape. :D

I want to paint hands and faces on some of my quilts and I don't want to spend a fortune in paints. I heard somewhere that adding aloe vera gel to acrylic paints makes them a pretty good medium. Does this work? Have any of you tried it? Does anyone have other suggestions? I want the painted area to end up soft, and I don't mind heat setting and washing. I would welcome your ideas. Cheers, BJ
