How to take care of Muslin Backdrops

Care & Handling:
  • Backgrounds should not be machine-washed or dry-cleaned

  • Care should also be taken not to get the background wet

  • When your background is new, it is normal for some light paint dust to rub off on your hands during handling. (This will diminish in time)

  • We recommend spraying the background lightly with a fabric protectant. This will help with cleaning up dirt and spills as well as stabilize the curing dust mentioned above

  • Additional Tips:
  • If a smooth background is preferred, a hand-held steamer may be used (with special care not to saturate the background with moisture)

  • Ironing is also an option, (we suggest covering your ironing board before ironing the background to prevent colour from rubbing off onto the ironing board)

  • * Due to the nature of handmade backgrounds, the colour and pattern may vary slightly from the sample shown

  • Please allow 5 to 10% shrinkage in the manufacturing process

  • Made from the highest quality 100% cotton seamless muslin material

  • Hand painted in a layering technique to add depth in final image

  • Excellent with backlights and colour gels

  • Colours may vary slightly from section of muslin shown in image
