I have a stash of fabrics to paint. Some were purchased for this purpose and many were collected. My plan for 2019, is to jump in and paint every piece! The fact that most of my paints from several years ago had all but dried up caused a short delay. I began fabric painting 6 -7 years ago using Off-the-Shelf Fabric Painting, by Sue Beevers as my guide, and relying on her basic palette recommendation.
This time I added 6 more color choices from the offering of transparent paints available from ProChemical and Dye. These colors are so yummy!
In the past I mainly painted fat quarters that I planned to cut up and mix with commercial prints to use in fabric collages that I quilted for doll garments. This time I decided to try a more painterly approach. Here you see wet-into-wet painting, printing with found objects, potato printing and more.
I am thinking of quilting these for more detail and texture. They could be wall pieces or pillows, or they could be used for Range Walker garments.
The larger photo shows the addition of orange glitter tulle across the center third of the piece. The patch in the middle shows here, too. A very unsuccessful section about 3" wide had to be cut from the left side of this piece. A small section of that was just what I needed to strengthen the design of larger piece.
