Default Singed Flower Issues

What's the best fabric for making singed flowers? I bought some satin from JoAnns and some from the Downtown fashion district, and the one from downtown turned out nice, but the Joanns satin was super flammable or something and kept burning the fabric too much.

Default Re: Singed Flower Issues

I find that satin of a polyester blend works best. I have bought some satin like material at Joann's before, but it turned out to be Acetate and caught on fire every time I tried. You really just have to play around. Starting out I would just get 1/8th of a yard of each fabric just to test them out. Here is a helpful site I have found on fabrics and which burn and which ones just singe: http://www.fabrics.net/fabricsr.asp I have heard that linen works well oddly enough, but I haven't tried it yet since it's a little more expensive. If you have a hobby lobby near you they run some great sales. Good luck, they are so fun!
