I wet the fabric more this time and used lighter colors. I didn’t get the grainy mottled look I was going for, but got this veiny look instead. It reminds me of marble.
I’ve had similar results adding salt to dyed fabric as it soaks in the containers overnight.
The picture doesn’t do this fabric justice. I wish I’d painted a bigger piece and may try it in another color palette because this is my favorite of all the fabric I’ve painted over the years.
I need to look back in my fabric painting books to figure out why I’m not getting the intended results, then I’ll try again.
