[BKARTS] adhering fabric to paper

another product (also mentioned before on these pages) is "stitch witchery" which is ironed between fabric & paper.; i use a thin japanese mulberry paper. make sure iron is set to steam and is hot.
(the stuff sticks to the iron if you're not careful so i don't advise using your household iron.)

"stitch witchery" can be found in sewing stores...the one i use (in nyc) sells it for about $4/yd.
oh & i use PVA (lineco PH neutral adhesive) to glue the paper to boards.
the thickest material i've used (so far) was old couch cloth from the 40s.
