Printing on fabric


It's amazing what you can do with a plain piece of calico fabric and a printer.  When I got Beccy's Botanicals Set of digital stamps, I just knew that fabric would come into my projects. 

Firstly I cut a piece of calico fabric larger than A4 (my printer takes A3) and coated it with Golden's Digital ground for non-porous surfaces. I have printed onto untreated calico also, but with this medium the colours are more vibrant.  I used one of the pre-coloured images from the Botanicals set and created the background design in Adobe Photoshop. Once the fabric was dry I printed the image onto it and then made it into a bag. Digital images are very versatile.

Be the best you can be today!

Hi Anesha, many thanks for this information. I only have an A4 printer but even so that won't stop me trying this technique out for myself. Elizabeth xx
