Stiffening Products

Recently, a fellow tatter, (Gina) very genrously sent me a couple of stiffening products that she thought would help with my 3D projects.
She sent me two products, one a porcelain type that didn't really do the job, (too many problems), and one called "Perfect Sew".
The Perfect Sew was absolutely brilliant! It is a clear syruppy liquid, easy to use......just keep mopping up the stickly liquid that drains off.....and then it dries rock hard. It does not clog the picots at all and dries absolutely clear. I am very impressed indeed and will see if I can get a supply in the UK.
Thank you, Gina, for your tremendous generosity!

this makes me wonder if the product Crystal Effects by stampin up would work the same. I may have to test that.

Thanks for the tips. said...

Gina rocks doesn't she? I'm going to keep an eye out for this product. Did I mention how much I envy your vision?

Hi Linda,

Thanks for visiting my blog - it led me to yours. Wow! Your tatting is really lovely, and the ideas about 3D tatting are so interesting. Your work is ingenious.

Since you asked, my quilt should be finished in the next couple of days. I had some fiddly insets to do to square it up, and now a simple border.
