I was able to accomplish my project, also used thickened dye in a black to outline and accent with great success. I did wash my quilt top and then the quilt to block as usual. Thanks

I took a class from Hollis Chatelain, see if you can find one locally.

Be sure to wash the finished piece, or the chemicals used to set the dye will degrade the fabric.

Absolutely what Norma said. also, if you paint on wet fabric, the dye will spread out. If you wait until the soda ash-ed fabric dries, the dye will not spread out as much. Have fun!

I want to achieve a realistic painting with shading etc. Do you use print paste to thicken the dye, then paint on soda soaked fabric? Do you steam the painting to set it?

Yes, you use print paste to thicken the dye. Not much is needed to prevent the dye from running. And you paint on soda soaked fabric that has dried. I don't steam the painting but leave it flat under plastic for some time as it cures with moist and temperature. Depends on your climate for how long you need to keep it moist. You'll have to experiment on the last question, but remember that the dye dries up one or two tones lighter.
I hope this helps.
