I'm painting a line down the back of a pair of black pantyhose, with a tiny design at the ankle. Obviously, I can't iron to set the hose. Even if they only last one wearing, that would be fine.

Any suggestions? Or just let air dry and that will be fine for a one shot deal.

Thanks for the help!

If you're only going to wear the stockings once, and not wash them at all, then skipping the heat-setting will probably not be a problem, as long as you give them plenty of time to very thoroughly dry. Many heat-set-type fabric paints are set quite permanently by allowing them to dry for a month.

If you want to do this project so that the stockings can be washed, then you should add Jacquard [URL=http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/chemicals/airfix.php][U][B]Airfix[/B][/U][/URL] to your Lumiere paint. If you add Airfix to your acrylic fabric paint, it will not require heat-setting.
