Fun Techniques With Fabric Paints

with Cindy Walter
It's never been easier to become your own fabric designer! Use fabric paints and fun techniques effortlessly as you make custom designs.

Learn fabric painting to create custom designs for piecing, appliqué, borders and backing with acclaimed quilting instructor Cindy Walter. Start with thin fabric paints as you blend vibrant hues with color-wash techniques, easily produce sophisticated patterns with heliographing and enhance the intricacy of your work in minutes, with salt! Use thick fabric paints along with stamping, stenciling and direct painting techniques to create beautiful designs without artistic expertise. Trace and paint patterns onto fabric to achieve the look of intricate piecing in a fraction of the time. Plus, unlock bold effects with mixed-media materials such as 3-D paints, ink pens, decorative threads and more! Make custom fabrics with easy-to-use paints that are completely colorfast.
