Wednesday was Painting Day

I'm off to the basement...

I start off with white.

I add my pigment.

I mix and stir.

I wet my fabric.

I paint with a brush.

I paint on dry fabric.

I paint with a spoon.

I like the texture on the wet fabric.

I added salt on some pieces. It does funny things to the kind of paint I use and adds texture.

 I wait till it dries before I heat set the colour.

My pieces of fabric are small because I use what I have and that's what I had this time (artist's statement). I will sew them together and create the size I need. Because I make up a small amount of paint at a time I can get a slight variation of colour in each batch. I think that looks interesting when the pieces are sewn together.
