No 25 – Fabric painting design contribution – using fabric spray to change/correct the colour of our clothes

Dear visitor at Your Colourful Mind,
Fabric spray cannot only be used to create new designs (post No 13) or to correct the results of not so successful fabric painting projects (see post No 11).

Fabric spray can also help us to refresh or change the colour of ready-made garments bought in a shop.

 

A big thank you goes to Anita today for sending in the images of her “colour-changing projects”!

Anita writes in her email (01.03.16), “I have only a few colors I really like. Sometimes I buy something because I like the design but the color is not ideal. The result is that I have several items in my wardrobe that I never wear. Now I bought some fabric spray and used it to correct the color of several clothes. Attached I send images of two examples.”

Anita didn't like the orange colour.

She used red fabric spray.

Anita had added the skirt extension but the white colour didn't fit well.

After spraying it, the skirt looks very nice again!

 

I have never thought about using fabric spray on garments which I bought in a shop.

But now I will sort out those clothes which I don’t like too much and I might be able to pep up some of them by changing their colours with the help of fabric spray.

Thanks again to Anita!

Wish you all a good time,

  1. Hi Margot,

    is there a way to see (and touch) the fabric painting “live”?

    Best, Ferdie

    1. Hi Ferdie,
      yes, you can have a closer look at different fabric painting projects if you live in or close by to Sydney: Your Colourful Mind will run a stall at the Bondi Markets on coming Sunday. See Invitation in Post No 22. Would be nice to meet you there.
      Cheers,
      Margot
