Description

In Kenya its REALLY hard to get good fabric; vintage we have plenty of, old school 70s patterns chosen by the TWO fabric shops, or selection of just pot luck.

So having salivated for far too long over Flower Fairy Fabrics I kinda figured out how to print my own.

      Thanks. I have found they fade down really well, the colours giving a sort old world look be good for paintings I guess it depends where you are; there’s a bubble inkjet fixative you could use which may make the colours stronger. GOOD LUCK.

    Hey thank you. I like the sound of a messy perfectionist.

    I googled the paper http://www.amazon.com/Reynolds-Aluminum-391-Freezer-Paper/dp/B000BZYCNK

    Hope this helps most craft shops stock some.

    Have fun : )

    Cool. Not sure I can get the right kind of paper here, but it really looks worth trying out!
