An easy way to enrich the appearance of your delicate fabric arrangements is to brush them with a lightweight clear or colored coating. Using Smooth-On’s new XTC-3D®, you can create custom floral displays that will perfectly compliment your jewelry, fashion, home décor, fine art projects, and more!
A soft, fabric flower is selected for coating with XTC-3D®.
XTC-3D® mix ratio is is 2A:1B by volume.
XTC-3D® is mixed thoroughly.
Mixed XTC-3D®is decanted into a foil bowl to reduce exotherm and increase its 10 minute working time.
Mixed XTC-3D® is brushed onto the surface of the flower until the sunflower petals are completely coated.
The model is inverted allowing excess material to drip off the sunflower.
XTC-3D® cures in 4 hours to a hard, clear, impact resistant coating. With only one coat, the petals are rigid and can be handled without deforming.
XTC-3D® High Performance coating creates a thin, smooth, high gloss finish.
XTC-3D® coated fabric pieces can now be displayed for applications from jewelry making, fashion, home decor, fine art and more!
