    I think it was Artex paints when I was a kid we did a lot of it as it was "the thing" in that day and age, they have held up well I still have tablecloths with it, I m sure when I GO THROUGH MY MOMS THINGS i WILL FIND A BUNCH OF DRIED UP TUBES!

    I used to sell Tri-Chem back in the 70's had NO idea they were still in business. My mother sure painted some pretty things with the Tri-Chem paints she was better at it than me. Have No idea what ever happened to my paints must have sold all them at a yard sale. I do remember that the trick to getting them to last on fabric was to heat set them and the color would stay bright. They probably have improved the paints a lot since then.

    I check out the site and see they still sell them on the party plan.....and they have a Lot more product than what they did when I sold it. Will have to check them out futher.

    Thanks for the memories.

    Oh wow, I loveeeeee your flower fairy blocks. I do hope you bring them out and use them in a quilt. Your mom did a great job on them and they deserve to be used. Hugs and smiles.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
