I did some test stamping today with my new stamping inks... I was less than impressed with how faint they transferred to the fabric. I have some inks I can roll onto my stamps that I will try tonight, but has anyone had success with any kind of ink pads and stamps on fabric?

I bought a VersaCraft stamp pad (it tested the best on a review that I posted the link to earlier). But, I haven't tried it yet... I'm a bit afraid... Cheesy

No more photos as I want it to be a surprise.  It's all done.  I've reread all of the instructions and tidbits and am very afraid that the layers will wash off.  I'm waiting the full 24 hours till I heat-set with my iron so that will be tonight.  Then a few days before washing, right?  Does everyone really wait the few days?  One place said 7 days, another said 4 days. 

If it all comes off in the wash, it will be back to the drawing board.  Now I know why some of you started so early!!!  Do you put it in the washing machine?  Or handwash?  Ahhhh.... Such a newbie here  Grin

I usually try to wait the time it says on the paint before washing (i think i have one that's got a 14 day wait before washing) but there've been times when i've gotten impatient and wanted to show off the new shirt i made or whatever and washed after only a couple days and nothing came off. As for handwash vs machine, as with anything handwashing is going to be more gentle and not have as much of an effect on the fabric. so if you're not sure if its gonna last i would give it a handwash first and if it looks like everything held up good (nothing's faded or peeling off) then you can try throwing it in the machine. or if you can always take a scrap of fabric and just smear some of the paint on it and see if that lasts in the wash, i mean you're testing the paint not the design so that should suit your needs.....good luck i hope everything makes it through the wash!

Thanks Ivory!  I appreciate the suggestions greatly.  I still have time so if I've put too many layers on, I can redo.  

I'm thinking that I should do test samples like you said.  
Test 1 can be one layer and over to the side I can add the fabric pastels.
Test 2 can be two layers and over to the side I can add the fabric pastels.
Test 3 etc. etc. etc.

Till I find out what the limit is.  Again Ivory, thanks  Smiley

My goal is to get everything printed this weekend. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a "well, at least I learned something from this mess" weekend!

For me, it depends on what I am stamping with, using a lino cut, frankly I found stamp pads a bit rubbish, I had a lot more success putting a dab of speedball screen printing inks onto glass and using a roller to work it until it spreads out and makes a sticky noise (shouldn't be much ink on the glass!) and then use the roller to transfer ink to the lino-cut
