painting on fabric
  • hi, i have been using procion MX powder inks to paint directly onto cotton fabric,
    first i was the fabric with soda ash,
    i mix the powder with cold water and then paint,
    am i missing a step?
    i have noticed that the ink fades quite a bit when you wash it. i was wondering if i was using the right product, maybe i should use procion H. what is the difference? would the synthrapol help keep the ink from fading? also is the Procion H more permanent. I am making clothing so it needs to be able to withstand washing. thanks for your help.
