Castaway is a truly unique stamp pad! We tested this on Procion Fiber Reactive dyed cotton fabrics with rubber stamps and really liked what we saw! After the image was heated with an iron, the color of the fabric is discharged and what was left was a nice pretty clean crisp image! Hardly any smell and very easy to use. Great for carrying around to classes and quilt guild meetings. You can create quick and easy "batik" like fabrics when needed on your hand dyed fabrics! Experiment to see the exciting results Castaway has on different dyed fabrics!
- Procion Dyed Fabrics
- Card making
- Stamp onto fabric.
- Let image absorb into fabric for about 5 minutes.
- Use dry ( or steam for stronger results) iron set a cotton temperature to heat image.
- Works best on fabrics dyes with Procion Fiber Reactive Dyes and colored papers that are dyed. Does not work on coated papers or papers that are colored with pigments.
- Each fabric and paper is different: some results that look ghostly, others appear antiqued. Experiment and have fun! Fabrics can be washed afterwards and the image will remain.
