This water-based glue gel adds an oilcloth or waxed-canvas finish to fabric, making it water-resistant, stain-resistant and UV-resistant. It can be used to restore water resistance on outdoor gear and fabrics, or to add water resistance to fabric, lace and cardboard.

A hidden benefit of OdiCoat is that it eliminates fabric fraying; you can use it to create waterproof patches in precise shapes with no need for seams or turned edges. I’ve used it to create waterproof bias binding and patches to repair a rain jacket (pictured).

OdiCoat is suitable for hats, jackets, bunting, umbrellas, purses, tote bags, toiletry bags and shower caps.

It can be used for food-related projects with indirect food contact only: aprons, bibs, tablecloths, placemats, etc. It is not suitable for food wraps, thick velvet, suede or embossed fabrics; you must wrap foods before placing them in an OdiCoat-treated bag.


Features:

  • makes fabric resistant to water, stains and UV rays
  • fabric can be stitched after treatment
  • fabric is machine washable in warm water
  • transparent and colourless
  • acid-free
  • bisphenol-free

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry fabric before treating it with OdiCoat.
  2. Place fabric on a flat, protected, non-stick work surface.
  3. Spread a thin layer of OdiCoat onto fabric with a flat paintbrush or card (an old plastic gift card or credit card is ideal). Allow to dry for 20-60 minutes and clean your brush with water.
  4. Repeat as desired for up to three coats.
    1 coat: the fabric is protected, water repellent. Area of coverage: 3 m²
    2 coats: the fabric is coated, with a coated canvas look. Coverable surface area: 2 m²
    3 coats: the fabric is waterproof, with a waxed canvas look. Coverable surface area: 1.8 m²
  5. After your final coat, let fabric dry completely for 24 hours.
  6. Iron fabric with parchment paper or baking paper once dry to cure and complete the waterproofing process.

Once treated and ironed, the fabric can be sewn, cut and machine washed at 30°C. (OdiCoat can also be applied to stitch lines and stitch holes after fabric is sewn, to enhance water resistance.)

For best results, test OdiCoat on new materials before use.

Made in France and packaged in a plastic tub with screw-top lid. OdiCoat usually comes with a new plastic card to help you spread it, but I send back the cards for environmental reasons. An old plastic gift card or credit card works just as well.

🌴 This shop is on holiday 🏖️

Orders placed now will ship on 22 July when the shop reopens.

---

Weekly dispatch

This shop dispatches orders once a week so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

I have a new work and childcare schedule for 2024 and am still working out the best schedule for postal dispatches; please allow approximately one week from time of purchase while I figure it all out.

Shipping carrier

I ship via Australia Post because it’s reliable, trackable and carbon-neutral

If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.

After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.

International customers: click here for current Australia Post international delivery timeframes.

Shipping fees

I don’t offer free shipping because there is no such thing as free shipping. Someone has to pay the cost for postage.

Shipping is currently a flat rate of $12 within Australia ($17 Express Post); international shipping is calculated at checkout. Gift cards are delivered electronically and do not require shipping. 

International shipping

I ship worldwide with the exception of the UK, due to VAT regulations that came into effect on 1 January 2021. If you are in the UK you can order the UK edition of my book from your local bookshop.

Local delivery

Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(。•́‿•̀。)۶

I choose to reuse

When shipping orders my first priority is to reuse packaging materials whenever possible – boxes, padded mailers, cardboard, paper, tissue paper, bubble wrap and egg cartons from neighbours, second-hand shops and recycling centres. I cannot guarantee the materials used to ship your order will be plastic-free for this reason.

My tags and labels are stamped by hand onto compostable paper tape or preloved cardboard packaging.

I buy recycled packaging

If I don’t have suitable second-hand packaging to use for your order, my next priority is packaging made from recycled materials. It's important to me to support Australian companies making good products from our recyclables, and to make sure that material gets a second life.

Tape

I use compostable, gummed kraft-paper tape to seal my parcels whenever possible. I have a second-hand tape wetter that I love, purchased from my local op shop. Gummed paper tape is available at most art-supply shops if you want to make the switch yourself!

Express Post orders will have official plastic "Express Post" tape added.

International orders with many items will have a plastic pocket taped to them, to accommodate additional paperwork required by customs.

Individual product packaging

Every item for sale on this website has its packaging components listed and in most cases photographed, so you can make an informed decision.

Upstream packaging

When I speak to my suppliers I specifically ask that my orders be supplied to me without plastic packaging, whenever possible, to avoid waste and single-use plastic. This isn’t always possible, but I’ll keep asking, forever.

Here's how one of my suppliers has my name recorded in its database:
