I was very disappointed today when trying to do the last exercise in the current module for my C&G. It was on Transfer Printing and as I don't have any Disperse Dyes (and they would take a little while to get here) I tried some of the alternatives I had read about.
I tried FW Inks, Transparent Artists Inks, Lumiere paint to no avail. Once they were dry the colour stuck fast and no amount of ironing/heat would transfer any colour at all.
Then I tried Oil Pastels and Setasrcit Fabric Markers and although a little colour transferred, not enough to call it a success. I really don't feel like buying a set of Disperse Dyes just to do one little exercise but will have to wait and see what my tutor says.

Final piece - bit nothing isn't it?
Anyone who has done the course and would like to let me know if I should perservere with buying them. I don't really use acrylic fabrics so not sure I would want to print them.
Keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow please. I have to have another scan to see if I still have blood clots. I have had to continue the nasty injections since my last visit and would dearly like to stop.
