Sylvia's Cushion
 

Art Deco  @ £4.50 for 250ml

A hardener for fabrics of all types as well as paper. This is a water based product which will stiffen the fabric as a whole or in part.
Either: Immerse the fabric in a carton of the paste, squeeze out the excess, shape or place over a mould, leave to dry and harden naturally,
Foxgloves and Jack Frost by Shirley Lewis

Or: paint an area of the cloth and leave to dry. If you wish to speed up the process, place the prepared fabric in a warm oven for about 5 minutes, it will continue to harden after removal from the oven. Any stitching should be done before the hardening paste is applied. The stiffened fabric can be painted after hardening .
 This sample was made by Sam Packer using the Art Deco product.
