Preserving powder paint weathering
« on: Jun 17, 2022, 08:23 PM »
So I powder paint weathered my soft parts using

Jack Richeson Powder Paint 1#... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JGZ8Q1A?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

And

Dry Pigment Size: 1.80 oz, Color:... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002646UV6?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

It looks pretty good but I'm trying to figure out a way of preserving the paint as much as possible so I can throw the soft parts in the washing machine. I had someone recommend a water downed fabric dye or a polyurethane coating. I also saw online using white vinegar and an iron set on high heat for color run t-shirts. Just wondering if anyone else has any other tips for this. Thanks in advance!

Edit: so i found a quasi-solution that seemed to work. If anyone else is trying to get pigmant/powder paint to stay in their soft parts so they can wash them i suggest givibng this a try:

1) lay soft parts flat and coat with white vinegar from a spray bottle.
2) let dry then iron with a high heat both sides.
3) turn inside out and wash, if its small enough to fit in a garment bag put it in one as well.

Now this isnt perfect and youll lose some of the weathering but it worked for me. So use at your own risk.
