Wax crayons made from renewable raw materials. Specially developed for use on natural textiles (cotton, bamboo, etc), they are not suitable for synthetic fabrics or wool.
Please note: A slight white haze on the wax crayons (the 'wax bloom') indicates quality and a high proportion of pure beeswax.
How to use your textile crayons: First, wash and dry the textile. Put some paper or card under the textile surface you want to decorate (e.g., between the t-shirt front and back). Draw on a firm surface. When you're finished, cover your drawing with absorbant paper and iron from the back side of the fabric without steam until no more colour adheres to paper. Then, iron your drawing from the front side without paper. Wait at least 2 days before washing, which you can do at up to 40°C with a mild detergent and without bleach.
