Found a new fabric paint and the test swatches took high heat and steam well. Glad I can draw and print again and started today with a new tea cup pattern. (Also made new labels, to be safe.)
There’s always something or other. After painting several pieces with a run-of-the-mill fabric paint I found out that it randomly can’t take heat and steam or it will puff up looking fuzzy and moldy. Ugh!
Wondering if this is because I dilute the paint with water? As I really want to be able to that, I will have to find a better paint. Maybe time to look into something more natural.
I just wanted to make a few changes to my blog layout but got totally lost, messed up the layout into unreadability, and had to start over. Since I didn’t know how to import the old content into my this blog, I spontaneously decided to simply delete it. I don’t want to get hung up on yesterday, so here I start again.
Currently I am working on painted and printed unbleached cotton tops, some dyed with tea. I really like the simple natural color palette.
