A SIMPLE TECHNIQUE FOR WORKING WITH FABRIC PAINT
Simple methods and available tools can easily be used even by beginners.
Sand paper is very convenient to use under fabric!
* The fabric will not shift (move) when drawing
* This prevents colour transfer to other parts of the fabric.
* The fabric can be left on the paper until dried.
Stencils made by yourself or bought at stores.
Use reusable stencils.
NATURAL STENCILS USE
For images showing the change of seasons or the beauty of nature you can also use natural ingredients such as plant leaves, etc.
PRINT, STAMPS USE
You can also stamp the pattern onto the fabric with prints and seals placing the fabric paint on the surface.
SPONGE TECHNIQUE USE
When drawing through a stencil use a piece of sponge. Making a special tool by putting sponge between disposable chopsticks or on top of a pencil, attach with a rubber band.
Instead of a professional palette, the waterproof inside part of a milk or yogurt carton can be used. Watercolour palette, (plastic made) is better to pre-wrap with wrap film, as the paint may leave a trace of colours.
