What are you most proud of? Learning how to paint on fabric and set it so that it is machine washable. And that she was happy!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Begin with wet fabric and keep a spritzer handy, do free-form background tinting first (this is on pale green batik to start with, so only the painting area is added). Sprinkle with salts and let completely dry. Lightly spritz the areas with more intense color. Dry. Lastly, paint with a fine brush details and then add fine lines with paint pen. Set as bottle directs.

What beautiful flowers...I've always wanted to try a project like this!

thanks! I'm glad I FINALLY did, it was fun and easy. I'm going to let my granddaughter fill in simple flowers on a black and white print - should be fun! Just jump on in, Karen.

Really wonderful job on the flowers. I hope we all get to see your friend's finished project.

Great job painting on fabric which I am a little hesitant to try. Your work and the fun you obviously had may just encourage me to start my own project! Thank you for sharing your work. It's beautiful.

This is awesome. Did you stitch stems and around flowers and leaves ?

Actually, there is no stitching on the piece as photographed. I gave the painted piece to a friend who is creating a bluebonnet blouse or jacket, I don't know which...she does marvelous machine work and I'm sure the piece will receive some further embellishment to make it incredible!
