I have everything ready to start painting. I am working on my kitchen table.
I put the pieces I painted on the kitchen island to dry overnight.
This is a piece of light weight silk. It has been painted previously and I just added some thermofax printing on top of it.
This is a piece of a heavier silk, a shantung. Most of the fabrics I will be showing you are not finished. I will be adding either more layers of paint or overdyeing them.
For this one I started with a piece of cotton print and used the wrong side. I had preciously layer painted it. After adding the screen print I consider this one finished.
After layer painting this silk shantung I added two screen prints. I don’t consider this one finished.
I will continue to work on this.
Printed on the back side of a cotton print, these were the bottom layer in a layered stack of painted fabric.
It will be interesting to see what happens next as I layer more pattern and color on some of these fabrics I shared.
