Same Procedure but with Fabric Paint

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? For the little brown fabric I used flour resist, then painted with fabric paint and over dyed with Procion MX. The other pieces are dyed completely in fabric paint. You should try it.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric and fabric paint/thinned fabric paint

Q&A with Gurli Gregersen

Jo-Mo asked:
Very beautiful, I've used fabric paint on dyed fabric, but haven't dyed over painted fabric, I'll have to give it a try :-)
Gurli Gregersen answered:
Thank you. Can't wait to see what you will come up with. I hope you will show it here.
Norma Hornung asked:
Beautiful fabrics. Possibilities are endless with combinations of methods
Gurli Gregersen answered:
Thank you.
Jane Dunnewold asked:
I love working with paint. Maybe that will be the next class! The paint solids separate from the water (I assume that's what you did - thinned the paint with water) and the water leeches away from the solids - so that you het that interesting edge sometimes. Very neat. Did it change the hand of tre fabric and make it a little stiff - or was it ok?
Gurli Gregersen answered:
That would be nice if you made a new class about that - and maybe printing? Yes, I used water thinned fabric paint. It changed the fabric a little, not much.
