Here are a few of the pieces from Saturday:
|Two pieces of silk paper|
|Wrapped on a 2" pipe|
|Wrapped diagonally on a 1" pipe|
|The clean up cloth wrapped on a 1" pipe|
I have used Setacolor for years but had never had such good results - my pieces tended to be on the pale side. I think I have always water the paint down to much.
The technique uses PVC pipe, but no string. I found the best results to start with a slightly damp fabric. Thin the paint no more the half with water and then paint the fabric in a random fashion.
Now take the piece and smooched it together from both ends.
