I'm a bit late on this thread, but Wendy you could come over to my place and we could play together, but lets wait until the weather is a bit warmer :)
The sun is shining but the temperature is zero Brrrrr

I just started fabric painting and I will also try marbling.
My 2 pieces are drying with salt on them. i am pretty pleased for a first time, but not totally sure where I will go with that!

The new show with Cindy Walter is great and shows the paints and how to use them.

just finished watching the new video. It was great. Wish she had discussed specific paints but I am excited to try. I do have dynaflow paints and have some cotton and silk to paint on. I think I'd like to use salt on the silk,"cause I liked that effect with one color. Loved her painted patchwork. Jan

Jan, I couldn't remember but my son assures me that it was acrylic paints. And yes Wendy, it takes very little paint. It was great fun you should give it a try. :D

I've had a go and what a mess I got it everywhere :oops: . I've learn't that less is more, I need a lot more water with my paint and some classes and different colours. I have cobalt blue and I think ultramarine is more up my street. Poor workman blames it on his tools :lol:

Good to hear there is a class coming and I'll look back at the other Rita. I'm going to carrying on playing and learning about mixing colour :D

Very nice, Rita. What kind of paint did you use? I think I remember that show. I'll have to watch it again.

Velda Newman's show here on TQS was great fun with painting. DS and I had fun painting these strange fruit and leaves on fabric and I then made it into a little wallhanging for his room. He's very proud of it.

Guess what Wendy? They're doing a show on fabric painting on Nov 19th. So we can wait until then at least. I'm psyched. I may even buy paints and cloth after that.

The skies are so wonderful I don't think I would be able to do them justice with a landscape of mine. Guess it's worth a try someday.

Check out this site: http://www.skydyes.com/ I have a few of her pieces, and they are way beyond fantastic! Mickey also has a dvd on her technique, if you want/need some instruction or encouragement.

Now then Wendy and Jan, it's only a bit of cotton and some paints - you don't have to show us if it turns out badly. Or you could dye over it. :D
