None of the ink ran with the exception of the blackest parts. All you do is swish it around in the water a bit more though. SIMPLE. Then you let them dry. (Wasn't he a cutie!?)
|Wrinkle lines appeared when it dried flat. ???|
The color is PERFECT, but once it dried there were curious lines or creases through the fabric. That particular one above bothered me of course because it goes right through his face. I was going to reprint, but I thought I would try pressing it first. Good results!!
|The crease is gone, the ink is fine.|
Whew! I'm happy about that. I got all the photos printed out. They are all dry and pressed and JUST like the original photos. Some are colored differently just because they are from photos that are decades old. They have an orangy look to them.
|Fabric all dry and pressed. That Superman is just the best! : )|
I am positive that his mother Steffi will be thrilled with the results of this! I cannot get over how clear and perfect these fabric prints are! I'm so impressed.

I never met Aaron. I learned about him the day I met some relatives for the first time at a family funeral. It's been such a good experience to spend time with his photos and his clothing. I feel like I get a chance to spend time with him in some ways. Thank you Steffi. ; )
