Yes, the range of fabric painting techniques is limitless, – we can easily invent new ways to transfer the paint onto the fabric!
Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,
In our last post we talked about the unlimited methods we can use to apply paint to fabric and create a design.
The purpose of today’s post is to offer a simple proof of our statement that we easily can invent new fabric painting techniques.
How I “invented” the “paint-dripping-and-rubbing-in” technique for fabric painting projects 🙂
Some time ago, while I was busy painting on a t-shirt, I accidentally dropped some fabric paint from my paintbrush onto another white t-shirt.
First, I was angry at myself, I shouldn’t have placed the new and clean t-shirt on my working table.
Of course, I didn’t want to waste the t-shirt and I thought about how I could still make use of it.
Then I looked at my cheap plastic paint palette with the paint leftovers from the just finished project. It would actually also be a waste of paint if I just threw the palette away.
Paint leftovers from finished fabric painting projects can be used to create colourful new designs
To make use of my paint-stained t-shirt and of any paint left, I took a plastic spoon, scraped off the paint from the palette and dripped it – this time intentionally – on one half of the shirt. Then I added some drops from another paint.
I folded the shirt to get a symmetric print, and rubbed it with my hands.
This is not the final design, I will continue to drip left paints from finished projects onto the t-shirt and over time it will become very colourful.
Here is another example of the “paint-dripping-and-rubbing-in” technique:
And you? Have you also created “new” techniques of fabric painting? What do you think about the “technique” introduced today?
