Today I came to an interesting thought to explore. If I didn’t have the exact fabric I wanted, how can I create the fabric with acrylic paint easily. I’m not into dying fabrics and the mess that comes with it.
So, I took out my acrylic paints and my Kona white fabric. Then I also thought…..What would happen if I use the freezer paper pattern piece, iron it to the fabric and do a “wash” over it. This is what it created:
It had enough resist to give me an outline for painting purposes.
I continued painting with my acrylic paints and various brush sizes.
Quite happy with the results and the ease of the painting, I continued adding details:
Finally came to the final touches to bring the painting to life.
Amazed at how it turned out! So, I now have a new technique in my “tool box”…..whole cloth painting!
I will quilt on top of it to bring out even more details.
