    Found at any craft store: "fabric medium" to add to any acrylic paint. This allows it to be washable.

    also one more point do not use water as it will spread the acrylic colour. thanks hanky must be dry and brush must be used along with acrylic colour and do not mix water with colours

    no . it is good to use acrylic colours as they can't be removed easily from cloths. I can say so because I had split it over my t shirt and I washed it many times but it didn't go away. so I used it. use can see my other instructable which use acrylic colours only like making optimus prime on handkerchief. also I have washed it once and results are good.
    good luck for your fabric design.
