I met Werner Herzog the other night at the IFC Center's screening of his excellent new movie, MY SON, MY SON, WHAT HAVE YE DONE
. I'd been meaning to buy one of these "Cinemetal" Herzog/Danzig t-shirts
for a while, and figured this was the right time to finally do it.
Herzog signed my shirt with a Sharpie, thus rendering a cool shirt even cooler. I'd like to wear
the shirt and
preserve the signature on it. Can you suggest a product with which I could treat the shirt so that the signature persists, even after laundering the shirt?
I hypothesized that something called "fabric fixative" might exist, and, lo and behold, it does! I found some here
, on the site of a company recommended by various
MeFites. Will this product do the job? Or might there be some alternative, or some additional product I can use for insurance?
I also looked at the "Sharpie blog
," and found that they recommend heat-treating to preserve Sharpie marks on fabric, so I'll do that. But I really want to render this autograph as indelible as I can, so all further tips are welcome.
