I’m the proud mother of three wonderful children and a silly and cute grandson named Sammy. I’ve been a designer and crafter with Plaid for 15 years. My love of crafting took off when I was 14 and won a “Best in Show” ribbon at the Orange County Fair for one of my oil paintings. Since that time, I’ve been crafting up a storm! I love Mod Podge and everything it can do - there is hardly a project out there that doesn’t deserve a little Mod Podge. I hope to pass my knowledge onto you and wish you much success in your decoupaging endeavors.

FolkArt ® Fabric™ Paint - Brush On - Licorice
Item #4426
Finally, a fabric paint that isn't stiff! FolkArt Fabric paint is specially formulated to absorb into fabric -- so it feels softer and flexes with the fabric without flaking off. Perhaps best of all, the colors are highly pigmented which means they look great on dark fabrics. FolkArt Fabric paint is permanent on textiles, once dry, painted fabrics can be machine washed in cold water.
