    I would like to know what are the best fabric paints and dyes that everyone likes using. I am having trouble with paints being too stiff. I tried rubber stamping on fabric, but the dyes washed out. Help!

    I know stampin up has a fabric ink called staz-on. I have not used it for quilts but I have used it for tshirts that we have washed a zillion times for the kids. I am not sure when anyone else uses for quilts tho. I am not that advanced...im just happy when my points match up properly ;)

    i guess it depends on what your trying to do.

    i like tsukineko inks and i like jacquard dyes and paints (Dye na flow, procion, textile paint, lumiere, pearl ex, tee juice).

    then for rubbings i like to use shiva paint stiks.

    Dharma is a wonderful company and I am a loyal customer, but some of these products can be found for less when they go on sale at JoAnn's online. Worth watching anyway.

    I use either Shiva paint stiks with a stencil or a brush. My next goal is to try Pigment ink in a bottle or a marker. You can view them at:

    Is a lot of fun.
