Re: inky tarlatan storage safety...
I wash and reuse them over and over until they fall apart or I recycle them into mixed media works.
I put them into an old pillow case that I tie off and toss the bundle into the washing machine. The soapy wash removes the oils and solvents but the fabric is soft and still tinted with the colours so I can use them in again or make them into other works. They look very pretty!
