Yesterday I played again in the sun with Setacolor Transparent Paints and Crafters Workshop stencils.
I pinned this easy adjustable apron tutorial several months ago. See the directions on Purl Bee here. I made this apron out of canvas drop cloth.
Here is what it looked like after I sewed it. Okay but it needed some color. I thought about ice dyeing, but decided I wanted some control.
This is what it looks like today using Setacolor Transparent Paints, the Crafters Workshop Daisy Cluster Stencil and the sun.
Here is a close up of the apron.
While I was in the middle of the painting I decided to play on a piece of drill cloth.
For this piece I used the Cosmic Swirl stencil from Crafters Workshop.
And this one I used the Retro Squares stencil.
A couple of weeks ago when I used Setacolors I thought the colors weren’t bright enough. This time I added less water to the paint and the colors were much more vibrant. This is such an easy way to paint fabric and it’s so much fun.
This is lovely, Lynda. I am especially intrigued by the drill cloth and how it printed. Very interesting.
Kathy, I really like that drill cloth. I love how it takes both fiber reactive dyes and the seta colors. I has a nice weight to it too. I’ll bring both pieces to show you next week. Looking forward to your class.
