I'm interesting in giving these a go, but what on earth is Liquid Starch? Where do I find it in Au?

I think it's like 'Fabulon' - you know the stuff you spray on to your clothes when you're ironing them to make them nice and stiff?

Start in the laundry aisle of a large supermarket. There are spray starches available, but I don't know what's in them. I'm more familiar with a powdered form that comes in boxes - like this:

and you mix according to directions. You could probably make it up strong enough that you could omit the flour from the recipe given on the website.

We buy spray starch for DH's work shirts & DS's school shirts. You could buy the powdered stuff like the PP posted but I've not looked for it for a long time and not sure if it is still around.

Looks like a great craft original.gif

Spray starch isn't starchy enough. Op, I found liquid starch in franklins, then IGA.  Not one of the woolies or Coles near me stocked it.  Try the smaller supermarkets.
