I can't find a supplier of Alginate here in Australia. Is it possible to use another thickener such as gelatine or arrowroot?

What product are you using the thickener with?

You can order alginate in Australia from Kraftkolour. They call it Manutex.

Both gelatin protein and arrowroot starch will react with Procion dyes, resulting in a lower color yield. (See my page, "[URL=http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/FAQ/alginate.shtml][U]Sodium alginate, Superclear, and other dye thickeners[/U][/URL]".)
