    At first I used the dryer AND ironed, and being queen of the shortcut, I thought...hey wait, the iron is way hotter than the dryer. So quit using the dryer.

      Yes, that's the way I learned it. The dryer heat sets the acrylic paint,
      plus I iron them afterwards. I put them in the dryer on hot for at least
      30 minutes, usually 45.

      The only time I had some pigment come off on my ironing board was when I
      had put some extra red pigment in the paint which I had gotten from Home
      Depot. I asked the manager of the paint dept if I could have some straight
      pigment to test it out and he let me have some in small round ziploc
      containers which I had brought with me. I think I needed to add some extra
      medium to it or something, still experimenting with that. I got one each
      of red, black blue and yellow, probably 2 or 3 ounces each.
