Jacquard Arts and Crafts Make Rainy Days Shine
Many families make their own “rainy day kits,” full of activities to entertain housebound kiddos. They can go to any craft store for the basics: coloring books, markers, construction paper and glue. But what if you could offer parents high-quality, affordable textile art supplies like fabric paints, dyes, screen inks, pigment powders, fabric art markers and more for an all-inclusive ultimate craft kit? Well get started in what could become a new profit center for your store, with Jacquard Products.
Realizing the lack of quality art kits on the market, Jacquard developed a line of kits in the early 1990s. The Large Tie Dye and Funky Groovy Tie Dye Kit were the first professional-grade Procion MX dye kits available to the non-professional artist.
The Silk Colors Kit is an introductory kit for silk painters, and the Hoop Painting Fun Bag offers kids a taste of the technique. The kit is perfect for tykes as young as three, and includes three 100% silk hoops, two brushes and all the dye needed for a perfect afternoon of art.
Other non-permanent body art includes the Glitter Body Art Kit, fun with a shimmery twist! Draw on designs with the medical-grade adhesive using the fine applicator bottle or apply through one of the six included stencils and just add the glitter. Designs last for days or are easily removed with baby oil.
Did you know tie-dye is making a comeback? But this isn’t the brightly colored hippie stuff of yore. Jacquard adds a sophisticated touch with an easy-to-use Camo Tie Dye Kit ideal for kids of all ages, as young as eight. This kit has enough to dye up to four t-shirts, but dyes are suitable for a wide variety of fibers, fabrics and applications.
In addition to art supplies, Jacquard carries a variety of textile art chemicals and accessories including: Transfer Paper, Inkjet Fabric Sheets and an assortment of waxes. Jacquard also distributes Cernit polymer clay. Jacquard Products manufactures almost 20 color lines.
