Resist, Phase Three and Four

We left off with the resist piece here.

Then I added a little bit of silver paint. It didn’t show up so I changed to silver paintstik. Next came blue paintstik over a rubbing plate.

I still wasn’t happy with the silver. My philosophy with paint is to go big or go home. It’s only fabric. I added more silver paint, and then added purple paint with a sponge (in the circles) and a brush (background).

I would normally keep adding layers, but this fabric will become a quilted project and I want the quilting to show. Sorry, this last picture is a little washed out. The middle picture is most true to color.

In hindsight, I should have painted more than one color on the first layer. I found the single color a little plain for my taste.

Next step, turn it into something.
