Day 1 that was misted and some cheap (the cheaper the better) black craft paint.
Originally I planned to squirt this paint out of the bottle, but I couldn't get the plastic seal off, so decided to remove the cap and use a paint brush to spread the paint.
Day 1, allowed it to dry, and scanned it, too. And yes, that's all I finished on this day. More tomorrow, if it isn't raining.
Day 1, apparently I had already thinned it down with water. That meant I couldn't move it until it had dried. And because it was so muggy and humid, it didn't dry for hours and hours and hours and hours and (OK, you get the idea). That translated to even more hours of waiting.
For the monochromatic pink fabric, I added a touch of red and bronze metallic paint, and spread them with my plastic card.
*Hand is the way the fabric feels, usually against your skin or to your touch. It's especially important if the fabric is to be turned into clothing. And of course, if I was going to turn this fabric into a pillow, it would have a very rough hand in spots where the paint is heavy.
Although this fabric is intended for either an art quilt or a scrappy book cover, not clothing or pillows, I'm really liking where this fabric is heading. And it all started with an old white bed sheet I got at the thrift store for less than $2.00. If you want to see other pieces I've made with this same bed sheet, go here, here, here, here, here, and possibly my favorite here. And it's obvious, I still have more of that same bed sheet.
Patty's blog. Patty had pounded some leaves into fabric. Now I confess, I have pounded flowers before, but never leaves, and never on fabric. So I was looking forward to this.
This is the scan showing the leaves I managed to pound into the fabric. Not sure what my next move will be, but as soon as the weather improves, I'll be back to play with more fabric, probably this very piece. Any suggestions are always welcome.
