Lini-Graphics / Tutorial Fabric Painting Another issue which I over and over move back to the way would be the painting of fabrics.

This is considered at first : No wood colors , No felt fabric or similar! < / em >

But: textile paint, brushes , a small bowl , water, some newspaper and an iron.

I'll show you the basic knowledge on a very simple example and then various techniques based on other examples!

The Tutorial
Step 1:
Look up for an image of the original. Try to work very detailed
If you spend more time in your work, you get a better result.
Step 2:
Now you put under the fabric, you want to paint, with newspaper and/or cardboard.
Pays attention that the fabric is Wrinkle-free .
Step 3:
So that the lines are regularly I easily drawn here the lines with a ruler and marked the strips which get painted later with a little cross.
The pencil can be hardly to removed so be carefully.
Step 4:
To be on te safty side, I taped the free stripe with some masking tape.
Step 5:
Now finally comes the splash of colour.
Textile paint is very thick liquid and opaque. On the glasses is every time a description - a How-to-use. It exist to types of colour. One for darker fabrics an one fort brighter fabrics.
On my example, the colour is for bright fabrics.
Step 6:
the Pure colour was to dark , I have the colour diluted with water. That works very well, so you can mix the colours together.
. Remember about the relation of water and Colour, if you mix something again later.
Step 7:
Of course if you have mixed your colour you can already paint it directly on your fabric.
Step 8:
You should be carefully with the painting. Avoid painting over the tape, because it is still possible that the colour underneath ' bleeds ' out!
Step 9:
If everything is dried - This is usually very quick - You have to iron it from the inner side of your fabric. And than everything would be done!
