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.
