Painting on Fabric?
I have some fabric dyes that I haven't used yet :~(, but I don't think they're right for the project I have in mind. I want to paint a graphic design on 3 white canvas panels. I'll be using them in place of some bi-fold closet doors. The panels will be held back from time to time so the paint needs to be somewhat flexible; I don't want it all to chip off. But it won't cover much of the surface of the panel so the flexibility thing might not be a big deal.
This is the basic design, with a white background, black stems and center spots and red outlined poppies. I don't intend to paint the whole flower red, but I'll have to play with it before I decide.
It's going to be on the wall opposite to the wallhanging I'm making with this panel at the center:
So, what kind of paint should I use? Any ideas? I don't want it to run! It seems to me that those tube paints like people use on sweatshirts would be too 'crafty'; I would rather have something I could apply with a small brush.
