Types of Textile Glue

If the fabric you’re going to stick is synthetic or natural fibers, then I advise you to use TEXTILes. It’s resistant to washing and ironing.

It takes about 2 hours to dry. If you’re going to use cotton fabric, jeans, you can also use Atex adhesive textile. It’s a transparent adhesive, and you can wash and iron the clothes without a problem.

Tips for Pasting Fabric

The main problem when you go to buy textile glue is that it doesn’t stain the clothes.

If the glue for clothes is not of good quality or is not the right one, it will leave you with a very ugly yellow blotch.

Clean the fabric very well before applying the adhesive. Make sure you don’t leave any remains on the surface of the fabric.

Once clean, let it dry completely. If the fabric is wet or damp, the fabric may come off later.

If possible, use a glue spray. In this way, it will be very easy to cover the area without lifting the fabric.

First, apply the spray on the fabric, and then where you’ll stick the piece.

It’s a good idea to wait a few minutes before putting the fabric together with the piece you’re going to paste.

Spray glues can usually be obtained in specialized craft stores, or in the bricolage section of a large area.
