Clearsnap Smooch

I discovered the Clearsnap Smooch from reading the Hearts In Touch Blog. They look like nail polish. I have given them a try. It works great on fabric. The white is not as opaque as I would like but it is quite white once I give it a second coat. You can see it in use in my examples above. I had to make a couple more examples for my workshops next week. I used only the Smooch to color in the stamped areas and I used it to doodle. The only other ink or liquid medium used were black StazOn and acrylic paints. It worked really well for me. I liked the tip of the brush. It had a fine tip that kept its shape even on the fabric. It did not crumble after I used it a few times. It comes in 8 colors. I do wish that there were a few more colors though. I kept wishing there was an orange and a black color.

BTW, Frances at Hearts in touch sells the 8 colors individually for $4.5o US each. Free shipping domestically, if you buy the whole set of 8. I don't know what the cost for shipping is internationally. You will need to email her to get that information and to purchase from her. Tell her that Belinda sent you. I don't get anything for this. I am just trying to get YOU a good deal so you can try a new thing. Her email is

Yes, I am groovin' on this fun, new thing. I will be using this again. I am going to bring this to the Quilt Festival so I can use it on my fabric books.

Hi Belinda these are so beautiful. I have always loved your style and creations though! I didin't know you did fabric too though! AWESOME! I just bought two bottles of the smooch clearsnap from Frances too, but now I need white! Hugs, Sanna
