Another beautiful morning to paint outside, and good timing because I was not thrilled with my last dripping paint results. Things are looking much better today though.
I mixed pink and red with a VERY small amount of blue to get fuschia. If you put in more than a drop of blue, you will get a lovely purple, but that is not what I was going for here. Then I mixed blue with a very light torquoise and a more green torquoise to get the torquoise-blue color. I mixed both colors right in a squirt bottle and added water to thin the paint. I hung my fabrics, sprayed them with the hose, and proceeded to drip the paint. After applying all the paint, I lightly misted the fabric to enhance the flow of the colors.
