Removing the flour resist and paint from your fabric!

Unclamp your now very dried fabric from the table.  Fill a large bucket with warm water and slowly submerge your fabric.   DO NOT do this step in a sink, as the flour resist WILL clog your drain and pipes. You’ve been warned!  

Soak the fabric in luke warm water to remove all flour – 15 – 20 minutes should soften the resist  enough to peal off.  Wash and in a mild detergent and cool water and dry after all of the flour is removed.  

*Remove wrinkles using an iron or steamer.

Fun was to use your decorative fabric

  • napkins
