  3. I’ve signed up for the printing course, but there are a couple of things in the supply list I’m not sure about, maybe because they’re called something different in the UK ? Latex house paint is not a term I recognise, also Matte Fuse Vinyl, and what do you mean by print paste ? Is it a thickener ? I have lots of steam fix silk paints to use, and I have thickener for those.
