You might check the pH level of the fabric store linings. When I had
trouble using the traditional wet process with silk brocades the fabric
store lining material was the first thing I tried. But I could not find a
single one that was not acidic. I don't remember whether I tried the
"Stitch Witchery" brand. Anyway, I ended up with an archival variety from
Light Impressions.  It also can be applied with an iron.
