SURFACE DESIGN IN PROGRESS – PAINTING 1

posted by SHELLEY BRUCAR

To recap, I started this piece with white cotton fabric.  The first step was using foam brushes to apply procion fabric dyes onto damp fabric,  allowing colors to bleed.  The second and third steps were additional procion dyes and vat dyes screened and dye-painted onto dry fabric to achieve crisper lines.  Today the fabric paints (Shiva Paintstiks) came out, and I did some painting on the lower left and on the background water area.

You can scroll down to the first two “progress” photos in the March 10 and March 15 posts.  Comments welcome!

  1. Wow! I loved the one you brought to the last guild meeting, but I didn’t get a chance to check it out up close. I love the progression of this new piece you’re working on. All the layering of dyes is really giving it depth. Gorgeous!
