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 ILOOn 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.
