Dear visitors at Your Colourful Mind,
With the last post (Post No 19) we started our series of example projects with the intention to demonstrate some of the many, many possibilities how we can find and execute fabric painting design ideas.
Today and during the next two to three weeks we will continue the series with further examples.
Thus, we will for some time remain focused on the second element of the fabric painting process: the design idea.
But it will not take too long until we are ready to direct our attention to the third dimension of fabric painting: the reasoning behind our choices of materials such as paints and markers, and tools such as stencils, stamps, etc.
Fabric painting project ideas – example no 2 – freehand painting based on a template
Today’s two example projects again were inspired by the German website www.kinder-malvorlagen.com which publishes simple images usable as colouring-in templates for children.
In both fabric painting projects I decided not to try to transfer the image onto the fabric by tracing the pattern through the fabric but instead to paint it freehand.
Of course, I didn’t manage to duplicate the original. 🙂
But that hadn’t been my intention, I only wanted to use it as an idea. Considering that, I am content with the result.
In the following project I created a freehand-drawn design with circles.
The examples at least show one thing:
When we are using templates for fabric painting projects we don’t have to achieve one-to-one results to get nice and “special” paintings on the fabric.
What do you think?
