I was playing with fabric paint over the weekend and decided to do three little onesies featuring a bluebird, bumblebee and an owl. It was nice to spend the day working with different materials and textures. We will see how well they do once they get washed again.
A few tips that I can give you if you want to try it out:
1. pre-wash all fabric
2. make sure to use cardboard between the front and back panels
so that colors do not bleed through.
3. I used Martha Stewart's craft paint with fabric medium added.
I find its easy to fix mistakes with some water if they should occur.
4. Don't be scared.
This holds for painting on paper, fabric or anything else. Fear puts a damper on your design.
5. I did the bluebirds with a stamp I carved but the other two I did freehand. I thought doing it freehand would be a problem but I found that it turned out well and really was not an issue.
