That was then and this is now!

Beginnings_2003This Winter I received this in the mail.  This is a group of photos taken of my very first booth setup at a quilt snow.  If I remember correctly it is at La Conner Quilt Fest 2004.  At that time I just had Hand Dyed Marbled Fabric, a few sample, pillows and Framed Hand Marbled Fabric.  Now ten years later, things have changed. Now_2014 I now just fit into a 10′ x 20′ booth, my Hand Dyed Marbled Fabrics have expanded to include Hand Dyed Fabrics(Cotton and Silk), Snowed Dyed Fabrics and Hand Dyed Bamboo Socks.  My product line has expanded to include Cotton Batiks, Rayon Batik Scarves, Patterns,  Artists Paintstiks, Stencils, a variety of Art Quilting Supplies and Sewing Notions and more. And_Now_2014 That would be me showing how to use Paintstiks, Brushes and Stencils on Fabric.  After all it is my job to tempt you!  I’m still at www.marbled-arts.com

How to Apply Terial Magic to Fabric

How to Apply Terial Magic™ to Fabric.

Step 1: In a dry sink or large bowl, spray Terial Magic™ all over your fabric until it’s saturated, almost dripping.

Step 2: Squeeze out excess solution into the sink or bowl.  Make sure the entire piece of fabric is wet.  Re-spray if necessary and squeeze out excess.

Step 3: Hang to dry, about 15 to 20 minutes. I was surprised at how fast it dried.

Step 4: You can air dry most of the way and then even if it’s slightly wet, take down and iron it until it’s dry. The ironed fabric should feel stiff and paper-like.

Step 5: Cut using Rotary Cutter or sharp scissors.

The 24 oz. bottle will do 4 to 5 yards of fabric.  You can use a curling iron to shape the treated fabric. Terial Magic™ will wash away.  If your creation is going to be exposed to the elements; you can spray it with Clear Acrylic Matt Finish so it will hold its shape.
