It has been some time since I have had a block of time to create in my studio. I mean to create new surface on cloth. I had fun today creating fabric that can be used to build a cityscape.
I used a vinyl sink mat for a stencil. I think I forgot to take a photo of the fabric.
I used the side of a plastic berry basket for a grid with mustard(?) deColourant on a rust fabric.
It did not work really well – too much seepage. This is heat set, but not washed so it will tone down a bit. Has some possibilities.
I was searching around for something else to use as a grid and remembered masking tape! I have it in lots of sizes.
Here is the result, unwashed. I like it.
This was done with masking tape. I have heat set part of this so you can see how nicely the heat gun removes the color.
Here it is all heat set, but not washed.
I used a plain deColourant on this gray fabric and used a small square sponge to make the grid.
I like the brown cotton with gold metallic deColourant which is up at the top of this post..
I have to get my chartreuse quilts up on the Twelve by Twelve blog. Tomorrow is reveal day. Can’t wait to see what every one did.
Great! I like very much the pieces you did using the masking tape. They really look like buildings.
They’re fabulous, Gerrie. The sink mat is my favorite thing to print with!
