Fiber Etch® Fabric Etching Gel - for Fibers, Paper and Wood

Fiber Etch® Fabric Etching Gel - for Fibers, Paper and WoodFiber Etch® is the most incredible product I've ever used - and I don't say that lightly! If you've ever destroyed a cutwork project because of scissor slippage or cutting through too many layers of fabric, you understand the frustrations I've experienced.

What about itty-bitty area's that you need to remove fabric from (think of those terrific machine embroidery designs) - how do you do this without either going crazy, blind, or both?

Fiber Etch is a liquid gel which comes ready to use for Devore' or "burnout" processes - it works by completely removing plant fibers such as: cotton, linen, and rayon yarns. If you use a blended fabric - any synthetic, silk, or wool yarns, those will stay creating a gorgeous etched effect that looks almost like it was a part of the original weaving.

Take a moment and watch the short video demonstration below about Fiber Etch - then explore the rest of the Fiber Etch section - you're going to be amazed. Promise. Be sure to see our Satin-Silk Scarf kit, this would be great for first time project.

With Fiber Etch you can:

  • Easily make your own designer fabrics.
  • Create transparent areas on specialty fabrics: rayon/silk, rayon/silk velvet, silk/linen, batiste cotton.
  • Add decorative stitching to your new fabrics.
  • Etch specialty paper
  • Make woodburned effect
  • Incised lines
  • "Watermarks"
  • Add watercolors, dyes, or pastel to your paper

Fiber Etch may be:

  • Applied directly from the bottle.
  • Silkscreened.
  • Stamped with foam decorator stamps
  • Brushed onto the fabric surface.
  • Applied with The AirPen®, for drawing fine lines and intricate details.

For Costumes & Set Dressing

Fiber Etch was used to create costumes for: Lemony Snicket's - A Series of Unfortunate Events, Constantine, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Of course the studios used it in 55 gallon drums!
