decorative painting on fabric
I'm new to posting here, but I thought I'd just dive in and talk about my latest endeavor. I've done lots of tole and decorative painting on furniture, walls and basic hard items, even did my own woodworking, but I've yet to paint on fabric.
Wanting to add a little customization to my dining room, I thought it might be nice to have some table linens to coordinate with my china and wall art. I found the perfect resource for inexpensive linens and nice color selections. http://www.linentablecloth.com. Yeah, it's been done before, but it seems we ignore table dressings to give that fine dining ambience, even if it is just a bowl of rice crispies.
I'm planning on using liquid acrylics mixed with textile medium. I know this works on cottons, but not sure about man made fabrics. Any suggestions of other paints would be welcomed. I'll post step by step photos as I complete this project.
