Nicola Killeen Textiles
offers a hand painting and ageing service for fabrics
and garments. We use the same range of dyes and paints
as in screen-printing.
Hand painting is ideal for single piece production,
or where a garment has to be coloured and the shape
does not permit it to be pinned out flat to accommodate
a silkscreen. Hand painting allows for the greatest
degree of production freedom.
We are able to age or break down most kinds of fabrics
or clothes. Ageing effects are often called for by film
and TV production companies where costumes need to meet
the demands of the script. Ageing of costumes can thus
range from a slightly worn effect, to near disintegration.
