Plastic Table Cloth!

Whilst waiting for some friends to make some purchases in a local fabric shop, trying to resist the temptation to join them,i came across some plastic doiley style table runner cloth! Not sure how else to describe it. So...
Having spent some time during the week successfully printing onto fabric using anaglypta wallpaper as my "block" i wondered if this table cloth stuff would work in the same way! I just had to purchase a little to try!
The white background piece with plum coloured design printed onto it worked really well. I just used acrylic paint printed onto pelmet vilene. Have have since washed the piece with ink and looing good.
The greeny bluey peice in the same photo are of said tablecloth but this time used used for sunprinting with Setacolour fabric paints! The other pic is of a different design piece of plastic cloth. Very pleased with greeny blue bit but not as pleased with the faux rosey lace bit.

This looks amazing Dot - what did you do - paint on the plastic table cloth and then print onto fabric with it? Val

welcome to blogland val's friend, I just bought some of that plastic at Trentham Gardens, I have sprayed through it, with not bad result, and then pressed what was left on the plastic surface onto some card, I liked that result better :)
