what a waste of a day
Spent a long time stamping previously dyed fabric with manutex thickened fabric paint, it looked great, ironed it to set the dye and the washed it, most of it washed out.ARRGGGG.Why? the paint is usually stable so what difference did the manutex make? should I have used some kind of mordant? if any kind soul is reading this and has any ideas I would love to know. I have now done some writing using procion and manutex, I have added washing soda this time, ironed it and whacked it in the tumble dryer to blast it.I cannot wash it at the moment as my dear husband had to fix a leaking pipe on the washing machine and now the cold water isnt going into the machine,DIY is not his forte, so its the repair man tomorrow.It can only get better, can`t it?
