I'm interested in stamping, is it easy to get Colour safe stamps or do you have to use fabric paint?

I'm going to use fabric ink similar to this. It works good with stamps (I've only tried lino-cut stamps) if you apply it with a roller like this.

Thanks for the link to that ink, Abbeeroad! Now, I'm tempted to buy one in every color... and then see what else they have on their website Smiley

And, I don't have time to check this out (plans to head towards Boston today just got changed in light of the current manhunt, so now I have to head in the opposite direction), but it looks like it could be kind of fun! Gelatin prints...

I have oil-based inks for rolling onto stamps. I'm pretty sure they would be permanent, but I think I will buy some proper fabric paints/inks/dyes just to be safe.

Okay, I decided to try it out and join. I can't wait to start printing! Question though, is batiking counted as printing. I've seen a technique where they use stamps with the wax to get really intricate patterns, but I didn't know if batiking was more of a dying technique and not really applicable for this swap?

This swap sounds great. I think I may try it and have fun experimenting with alot of the different techniques and inks.

I feel like such an amateur after reading all the comments! I usually just use freezer paper and cut out my stencils and paint with fabric paints.  I have also done stamping.  I am also interested to know if batik-like printing counts.

As for fabrics, I'm pretty much up for a canvas or heavy cotton fabric.

Stitch in Dye is the blogspot blog I was trying to remember yesterday.  She is some one who does really cool discharge and over dye stuff. 



Now, if you want to get really technical and chemically, you can do cyanotyping on fabric.  This picture is on watercolor paper because I can't find a pic of the fabric prints I've done.  But I have successfully soaked the fabric in the chemicals, made the negative and printed on muslin using only light from the sun.

I'm not sure if batiking would qualify, but if you talk to your partner and they're ok with you trying it out for the fabric you're sending I'm ok with it.
