  • Re: "Steam a Seam 2 and paintI

    I was excited to try painting on Steam a Seam after reading this forum topic. I tried a little sample. I painted the SAS with metallic gold Lumiere paint and sandwiched it between a scrap piece of fabric and tulle (using my teflon pressing sheet of course!). Here's a picture. It turned out really...

I live close to the Gulf and have a collection of sea shells and drift wood native to the area, (and others bought). What I want to do is an all over surface...

  • Will Paint stick to high performance fabrics

    I've been shopping for a short sleeve shirt that is made out of wicking fabric and has UV protection. All the shirts I find are solid colors. I've been wondering if I can make them more attractive with fabric paint (stamping designs, mark making, etc.) or use Shiva sticks on them. Do any of you...
