What advice would you give someone starting this project? I make a lot of projects that I feel I need to try, but the ones that "feel" right turn out the best! I try to make things that I want to make now and not the things everyone else think I should make :)

Love that horse. How did you do it?

My kindergarten skills are paying off! I used a lightbox to trace the design onto the fabric and then painted in the horse with a mix of aloe vera gel (as a thickener)/fabric medium and derwent intense pigments (block form and paint brush). A bit of iridescent medium thinned with water was brushed on after the fabric dried (I also iron to set the colors). Thanks!
