Watercolor on material!
This is really genius and super fun!
It doesn't take a lot of supplies to make it permanent!
I don't know what the parameters have to be...I just used some that I had in my stash.
It was white and silky and gets super wrinkly.
Also you will need watercolors
A big paint brush
and Fabric Medium
Fabric Medium is fabulous and makes it so any paint you use adheres to textiles.
Usually you mix it half and half with paint.
Not this time.
Get your fabric and your watercolors wet.
I washed my fabric but did not dry it.
and then clean up...so, that's awesome.
If you don't have an easy clean up/waterproof surface...
maybe take it outside on the cement.
Just get it really wet and add color.
Splatter, splash, splotch and mix!
so all the splatters and spots ended up mixing.
Not a big deal, but fyi.
I put about 1/8 cup of water in a cup and about half that amount of fabric medium.
This did not make my paints blend more...it just painted over all of it evenly.
It dried really stiff. That is no good for fabric.
So I threw it right into the washing machine to either make or break the deal!
Then dried it.
The colors are actually much more vibrant than I thought they would be!
I am thrilled! Dying fabric can be really pricey...but watercolors are very inexpensive!
