I was finishing the goldfish piece using the finishing techniques of JEC. Unfortunately it wasn't meant to get wet - the ink that was the design ran, and there were blue halos around everything. It took a lot of spraying and blotting to get it sort of ok - but not perfect. Also some of the orange silk color ran onto the fabric. I was SO DISGUSTED, especially since I was so careful with this piece. Live and learn - I'll call it my cheap Chinese restaurant piece - I can hardly bear to look at it.
