It's simply the life!
To get up in the morning
And paint fabric.
I've been searching for just the right fabric to go with my string of pearl for my next table runner when all the while, it was right at the end of my paint brush!
From start to finish:
Gather materials......white fabric prepared for dying
paper or plastic plate
I protect my work surface with a piece of freezer paper, but any surface cover will do.
In plastic plate, squirt a dab of acrylic paint.
Since I wanted the outcome to be a really muted gray, I added lots of water to my black paint and mixed with my brush. Then,
with loaded brush, painted over the geli plate. Because the brush was large and the paint was very watered, I got gray water drops just to my liking.
My painted fabric is a perfect blend with some off-the-quilt-store-shelf fabric I had on hand.
There you have it.....a table runner project in the bag for quilt retreat in mid-September. There'll be more projects gathered before I get the final packing done, but this is a start!
