Dear Sweet Red Clover, Stephen here. I am so sorry I haven't gotten to your question in 2 episodes. The truth is I don't really know what type of product would last on fabric through wear and tear and washing. If I here or learn of something that will work, then I will make sure to comment about that in the next art answers episode. Thank you so much for asking! I am honored that you take the time to take part in our mutual artist community. Thank you! Stephen Lursen
