During deep painting, the product is completely dipped into the coloring composition and periodically removed - squeezed, turned over and wiped on hard-to-reach areas so that the thing is completely dyed. After soaking, the thing is taken out, straightened and dried, so that there is no shrinkage. In some cases, a fixative is applied to the product, if this is indicated in the instructions for the paint. But this option of painting is categorically not suitable for shoes and clothes, because will shrink things.
