  COMPANY HISTORY:

Stewart Gill paints were originally created in 1998 by husband & wife team Grant Stuart & Rebecca Gill in order to have the very best colouration products for their professional textile commissions: (Grant; a couture fashion & costume designer. Rebecca; a textile artist). After creating the paints for ourselves, demand flowed in from other interested textile artists, and paint production increased until there was no time left to produce garments!

These days, we still make the paints to exactly the same recipes, lovingly hand-produced in Scotland in small batches. 

We know how much passion & commitment goes into creating fabulous art & textiles, and we care enough about your creative endeavours to bring you the ultimate paints for performance, longevity, and versatility.                                                                                                   

   SO WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH SG PAINTS???

SG paints are now well known and loved by professionals and beginners alike because:

  1. a superbly soft surface handle means your fabrics stay soft, pliable & stitchable.
  2. All SG paints are water based and child-safe, and heat-fix simply with a hot dry iron.
  3. After fixing you can machine or hand-wash your painted fabrics, and dryclean & tumbledry too.
  4. The colours are vibrant and pure, acid-free and archival as we use only the finest Italian pigments.
  5. Our lustre pigments, metallics & glitter paints never tarnish and can withstand direct ironing, machine washing and regular wear & tear!
  6. All the paint shades are intermixable between the different ranges
  7. you can layer the colours directly onto your fabric, and heatfix all in one go - there's no need to fix each paint type separately! 
  8. All SG's have a medium-thick viscosity so you can use them for any work that needs sharp edge-definition with no bleeding ie; stamping, stencilling, direct paint techniques, and screen printing etc.
  9. And yet by diluting with water you can create fluid colour washes too - it's really up to you as these products put you in total control. 
  10. Perhaps most exciting is the many surfaces you can use your SG paints on - ALL FABRICS including both natural & synthetic blends, paper, card, shrink plastic, polymer clay, Tyvec R, foams & fusibles such as Vilene R, leather, buchram, bone, shell, plaster, paperclay
  11. use your SG paints on anything that's porous or any surface that gets heat applied to it.  

We hope you enjoy creating with your SG products as much as we enjoy creating them!
