Fabrics as we may have known it 100 years ago is not the same anymore. Before I created badges I would not have dreamed polyester was anything other a material found in clothing. That is not the case anymore.

What washed off was as a result not having a substrate to hold the image in place. A fixer suitable for contact with skin.
The transformative properties of a chemical nature of what I once believed was clothing allowed what would be a clear polyester resin cast of a 3D print
