Fiber Etch® - Fiber Remover

Fiber Etch is a liquid gel which comes ready to use for devore' or "burnout" processes*. Top designers use it to create fabulous looks.

You may etch designs into fabric and paper to produce elaborate devore' techniques on cotton, linen, or rayon fabric blends. Fiber Etch also removes fabric within embroidered or painted areas for 'cutwork' effects. Apply or silk screen Fiber Etch gel and allow to dry - heat to activate - and rinse fibers away.

Fiber Etch is also formulated to work on paper and wood! It actually 'etches' into the surface of paper and wood.

*Cotton, linen, and rayon yarns ("plant" fibers) are completely removed with Fiber Etch. With blended fabrics, the synthetic, silk, or wool yarns which remain after etching leave decorative effects, appearing almost as if they were woven into the fabric.
