FABRIC PAINTING

Priyanka of Asankhana inspired me to take up Fabric painting. So here is my very first attempt to paint on Fabric.
It was so exciting to do fabric painting. I started on a small budget. Bought a $2 Tee shirt and bought cheaper fabric paints as I was not too sure if I could pull this one through like my talented KC mates.
But all at home are impressed with my art work and my daughter wants a painting done on her Tee-shirt too….
Here are the things I used to paint on

I used a ruler to draw straight lines, marking chalk to mark on the fabric, Fabric paints and a wooden ring (picture below)to keep the fabric tight and straight while drawing upon it. There should'nt be any folds or wrinkles while painting.

My maid belongs to a place called Ilo Ilo in Philippines and hence on the back of the Tee I wrote

I love(Heart shape) ILO ILO

On the Front I have tried to draw a Peranakan style Rose (inspired by my visit to the
Peranakan Museum @ Singapore)




Since my first attempt at Fabric Painting has been appreciated at home. Iam going to try more of it. Its fun, creative and makes a $2 Tee look like an expensive one.

Have bought more $2 shirts , one for my daughter and one for my husband and planning to do different themes for them too.
