Painted Fabric

Some friends discovered Micky Lawler's Sky Dyes book so we played around with it. In this piece I was trying for a plaid, LOL. Oh well, at least I used up the leftover paint!


This was actually a fairly good sky, but when I hung it on the line to dry it folded on itself :-(

No idea what this will be, probably the base for an art quilt. I was trying to see how well the paints blend on wet fabric.

More using up leftovers: the 3 primaries

Another attempt at a sunset. As you can see, painting doesn't come naturally to me.

Red and yellow blended on the fabric then salt drizzled in a spiral. Interesting texture.
All in all I wouldn't call any of them thrilling, but the more you practice the better you get, right?
