A box of fun! It inspired me to get out the paints!
These are from the scrap bins, I often use small pieces to test something.
One has the daisies pressed in a circle, one has the cut-out paper ironed down. One other long strip has daisies pressed down the length in order to try sunprinting again.
let's go outside with paints, sea sponges and a covered board.
Great! Now let's pull up the sheet of paper...
Now let's look at the sun print Using diluted paint daubed on around the daisies on the border. Then put it in the sun...
Look at the pretty watercolor effect...
|with the little papers still on while drying|
This is intensely pretty in person.
Next is press the fabric to set the paint. Even if you don't plan to wash it, you want no chance of it running or crocking off. I mean, once acrylic dries on your clothing, it would be near impossible to get off! Still...
I'm pretty jazzed about quilting these. Then beading. And giving them away!
If you've never tried painting on fabric through hand made or commercial stencils, try it! So easy. Make sure to mix colors for a richer look. I mix right on the fabric usually as I'm an impressionist at heart.
