What advice would you give someone starting this project? spray paint was the fastest and easiest. acrylic and textile colors took me along time to apply and i had to mix them with water but also DON'T add too much water. but they looked nice

Love seeing all these tests. You really learn so much by getting your hands dirty and experimenting with what works best for you. xo Natalie.

I actually love the somewhat mottled effect where the paint is more opaque in some parts than others. I've also learned that I like the combination of gray and pale green from your test photos. (And, gray and pink.)
