Fabric Painting: Layering Colors on Cheesecloth

cheesecloth1-dryBeth left a comment and asked what kind of paint I’m using.  I’m using Pebeo Setacolor and Lumiere fabric paints.  Maybe later I’ll try some inks, paintstiks, etc., but for now I’ll stick with paint.


I took another picture of the mostly dry samples.  You can see now how much more color variation happened on the brown piece.

I’ll let these dry completely before I go another round.
