If a person will go to "Terial magic.com", you can find lots of good information and even patterns to make things. They have a newsletter and video.

That's not the same stuff. It does not give a crisp, stiff finish and is not starch.

I'm sad. 😞

Me too - it was the ONLY spray "starch" available at Kroger when I went out the other night just to get spray starch - and it's terrible for adding body. I soaked the fabric three times and it was like nothing.

It may well "smooth" your fabric, but there's not enough oomph in it that I would even use it for starch-prepared appliqued.

Fortunately, I have Sta-Flo liquid so I can mix some of that in.

And I just ordered the stuff necessary to make the Terial Magic substitute and cotton quilt glue-basting spray from that link on The Feisty Quilter - we'll see how that works out.

Right below that recipe, there's another one for basting polyester batting and I might try that, too.

Terial magic is not a starch as such. It's more of a stiffener/stabilizer. It was designed for making fabric flowers and craft. I have used it on fabric flowers, then you spray them with a poly clear coat. I never thought about running it through my scan n cut machine for quilt fabric. Just did and it worked great, now to see if will wash out.

Terial is used for machine embroidery a lot. It prevents puckers and wrinkles from forming around the design. My friends that do machine embroidery use a lot of it.
