I found an old pink dress, this dress the under skirt is pink satin. I thought I would at least work up one sheet of satin just to see how it does. As you know satin some time just likes to "run" ink. A little ink spot on satin............. Need I say more??
I ironed all the fabrics on to the freezer paper. You can get rolls of freezer paper in the grocery store. I think that I paid $1.99 for my roll.
Then I took a piece of printer paper and cut the "freezer fabric" to size so that I could send it through the printer.
Here is all of the "freezer fabric" that I wound up with. Each one is cut to the size of printer paper so that they will go through that printer with no problems.
I printed on the satin one first. I was so curious! Look! No runs! It turned out wonderful! This opens up all types of possibilities. I have white satin and a mint green satin that would make nice silkies.(If you don't know how to print silkies I have a simple tutorial here on my blog. It is the post before this one.)
Then of course the silk came next. It printed up real well also.
Now the cotton batiks. I wish that you could see them up close! These make beautiful silkies!
