    Looking for a name of this product

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if any of you knew the name of this product. It is kinda like a glue, used for arts and crafts. You often see it used on shirts to draw decorations and what not. When it is dried, it is still slightly flexible and gooey, although it holds its shape well. You can squeeze it and it will morph to an extent, but always goes back to its original shape.

    It looks as if somebody just added coloring to elmers glue and squirted it on something, but its physical characteristics are different than dried glue, and it is those characteristics I need. Anybody know any ideas? Thanks.

    Puffy paint? Found in the t-shirt decorating dept of the craft store.

    When my mom made t-shirts, the kind of paint for the shirts was called "tulip paint" - i guess tulip is the brand? It came in a regular kind that sounds like what you're describing, a glittery kind, and a puffy kind that got bigger when you blew the hair dryer on it. This was like 15-20 years ago though...

    you can still get "tulip" paint (there are different brands) and puffy paint at the craft store. JoAnn has a clothing decorating section with lots of types of fabric paint, including the kind that looks like a bead of flexible glue when it's dry.

    I agree, the "tulip" paint is the best description. I saw different brands of fabric paint but some of them are supposed to dry flat, not 3d or bumpy, if you catch my drift.
