I use a lot of Moda Marbles as backgrounds and neutrals in my quilts. I like the mottling and the fact that they read solid. But sometimes I want a little more texture to add interest. That thought inspired me to paint a fat quarter of white on white (WOW) fabric with several variations of the same color.
I started with red paint mixed with brown.
Then I added red mixed with black.
Red mixed with white went on next.
Last I painted and stamped with red mixed with metallic gray. It doesn’t show in the picture, but the fabric has a bit of shimmer to it.
I love the result! This technique is a keeper.
Are you tired of all the WOW painted fabric yet? I had fun with this, but I think it’s time to move on. I’ll have to browse the list of techniques I want to try and find another volunteer.
