This looks perfect for something I want to try but like some other people in this thread, I wanted some more information.

I googled 'image transfer with soap and turpentine' and a couple of other sites seemed to say that you can also use soap powder (such as 'Ivory Snow'- I don't think we have this in the UK but hopefully that will help somebody) or any unperfumed soap shavings.

They also said you can use a turpentine substitute or even white spirit, although apparently that's not as good. I didn't manage to find anything about printing onto dark fabrics so I guess some experimentation is needed.

Also, one place said that you can store your transfer ink (as it's apparently called) in the fridge and that if it solidifies, just stick the jar in a pan of warm water. Another said just store it at room temperature.

Hope this helps!
