So the material has arrived and Moo and I will be picking it up on Thursday evening!
Since I have finally come to the point where I will need to be thinking about paints and such, I've started to do a little bit of research.
So far it looks to me like Permaset Aqua Supercover Fabric Screen Printing Ink is going to be my best bet. It sounds to me, based on what I've read and heard from others, that this paint should be able to withstand a fair bit of love in the water and still retain its stretch. I am interested since of the paints/inks I've looked at, this one seems to have the largest variety in terms of colour choices.
I am also really interested in this paint since, unlike many others, it also happens to be the most environmentally friendly and 100% solvent free.
This is really exciting for me since I was getting a little worried about what types of paint to use. I can't take all the credit for this discovery however! It is thanks to Hannah Fraser who posted a little bit of a Q & A section on her site with a small amount of info on her blue tail and some of the materials she has used in the past.
Thank you Hannah, you truly are an inspiration!
ALSO! A HUGE thanks to my very awesome Moo-tastic Moo for being AWESOME and helping me order my material! I can't wait to get started!
Have a happy Wednesday everyone!
Hee hee! It also happens to be my swim night tonight which might explain why I'm in such a fantastic mood! I'm going to try out my new flippers tonight and I will let you all know how it went tomorrow at some point!
