I Wouldn't Get This if it Was Free Review by Katherine

Deco Art made a huge mistake with the Ink Effects line, which is too bad since one can usually depend on Deco Art to to produce high quality art products. They totally missed the mark on this one!

The Ink Effects paints state you should spray this on the fabric you intend to transfer your painted Ink Effects. It is supposed to make the Ink Effects adhere to the fabric better, and make the transfer process easier. NOT! I didn't notice any difference in the cruminess of the transfer whether I used the Basecoat or not. This didn't seem to help my designs stick to the fabric any better or worse. I think the entire line of Ink Effects are a total waste of money - the paints do NOT make a clear transfer, and a few washes will just about strip the ink from the fabric. It's a total bummer and I wouldn't waste my time or money on this product. So disappointing!
