I'm hoping to print some of my designs onto fabric and although quite exciting it's also a little daunting as its a completely new area for me. I thought I'd just be ordering some nice plain fabric that I liked the look of but soon found out it may be a little bit more complicated.
After a request for advice on twitter the lovely Tegan Rose of Ink & Spindle suggested that unless I wanted the hassle of pre-washing the fabric I should be looking at PFP (Prepared For Print Fabrics)
It was long search as suppliers who stock this fabric in the UK seem few and far between but I managed to find Whaleys they were really helpful and sent out up to five samples free of charge (samples shown above).
I'd be really interested to know of any fellow printmakers experiences of printing onto fabric especially regarding pre-washing and heat setting Inks as that's my next dilema so please leave a comment if you have any useful advice and don't mind sharing.
