And this piece shows the result of dripping paint on wet fabric. Obviously, if the fabric is wet, there is much more blending of colors. For both pieces, the paint was diluted with water to make it “drippable”.
This experiment was done with a comb (once again, the many uses of common household items). The fabric was painted orange with fairly thick paint. A comb was dragged through the orange paint to get the rhythmic lines. After the orange dried, diluted blue paint was brushed over the top. The blue paint filled the lines formed by the comb to darken that design. The white lines across the top were done with broom bristles.
