      Hi, All,<BR>
      I thought it would be fun to marble some sox for a church bazaar, and I have <BR>
      learned that while fun, it is *very* labor intensive!� I made forms to <BR>
      stretch the sox on, and am using acrylic paints on carragheenan.� I alum the sox, <BR>
      and let them dry.� They come off the size with a very sharp and bright pattern, <BR>
      and keep the pattern in the bucket of water I swish them in to get out the <BR>
      carragheenan.� Then I put them in the washer, short, gentle cycle, cool water, <BR>
      and a tiny bit of detergent.� They come out faded, and grayed, and have lost a <BR>
      lot of the original sharpness of the pattern.� Obviously, the washer is the <BR>
      problem.� <BR>
      Could list members help me out here, please?� Do they need to dry to set the <BR>
      pattern/paints before washing?<BR>
      Thanks in advance!<BR>

        As a rule all acrylic marbled materials should only be hand washed, as in
        soaked in Woolite type soap for three minutes, or dry cleaned. There should
        be other more permanent fabric paints that may be able to stand a washing.
        This is a surface design and any scrubbing even on gentle cycle will scuff
        off the design.

        Even heat setting with an iron will not be foolproof. Personally I would
        just put them in the dryer for 20 min.to set them, and never machine wash.
        Others who marble fabric will likely know more.
