When painting on fabric, wash the fabric first, to remove sizing, then when dry transfer design onto the piece, (I use iron on transfer pencil for more detailed art), if not much detail I draw the design with pencil.
Mix the Textile Medium with the color choice, start painting. YOU MUST LET EACH COAT DRY FULLY, AS THE PAINT WILL SMEAR IF NOT DRY.
Continue until you are happy with the result’s, when your piece is entirely finished, turn it over & iron the back side for a few second’s with your preheated iron, to set the paint, this makes it machine washable.
If you want more instruction, be sure to leave me a comment, I am Happy to help.
Happy Painting !
Sharing my Halloween Tole Painted glass bottle’s, glass bottle’s are so much fun to paint on, if you choose the right bottle, some have a good size surface for painting a design, so I am excited to share these creation’s with you.
CRAFTY TIP: WHEN PAINTING ON BOTTLE’S BEFORE USING ACRYLIC PAINT, SPRAY PAINT THE BOTTLE FIRST WITH A COLOR OF YOU CHOICE, THE ACRYLIC PAINT WILL ADHERE BETTER.
Happy Halloween !
Sharing some of my Iris’s today, Have an Awesome Weekend !
I have had a passion for planting a yard of beautiful trees bush’s, lawn just a little green sanctuary, for my little family. Little did I know that it takes a REALLY REALLY LONG Time(30 yrs.) for tree’s to grow. All of my 5 kids are grown with family’s of there own now,(24 Grand-kids) but I still gave it everything I had, to create a wonderful cool shade yard for them to play in . Well my grand-kid’s now have a beautiful yard to play in, & I so hope that my children appreciate what it took for me to achieve the yard we have today, after all we do get to have family get together s, where we can play, hang & have BBQ’S at the fire-pit. I never give up on that perfect hangout for my family. I was sick most of this week, & was wondering, what am I going to do when I get older than I am now,(50 something) with this big beautiful yard, it has been neglected because I didn’t feel good, & when I’m older the up keep will kick my butt… However I do believe I will still be Happy in my Zen creating a little piece of Heaven. Hope you enjoy my yard as much as I do. The first photo is of a wall I have in the back yard that my two girls are painting a scene on for us, with a few of the flower cubbies around the wall. A glimpse of our fire-pit, part of the front yard, with an Awesome yard table & chairs one of our son-in-laws made for us. Did I mention 20 different tree’s, well 5 of those 20 are the same type of tree. & last but not least a photo of my Empress Tree in my back yard with a giant leaf shot 21″ one way by about 24″ the other way…
