Painting your way to Complex Cloth

Stenciled, hand painted Lutradur

Had lots of fun with this one. Hand painted a strip of Lutradur in various colours using Permaset paints. Heat set them then added a spritz of glitzy colour using smooch spritzers and a stencil. I love combining painted methods rather than dyes to get the complex cloth look.

This was really easy and quick to make a beautiful banner. I’ve also been playing around with the hot water dissolvable glue. This time I stamped a hand painted piece.

Glue Batik cloth

Using my own stamp design carved from a soft carve block, I stamped a hand painted piece of cloth with the glue. Then after it had dries I painted over the glue and heat set the paint. Then it was just a matter of dissolving the glue to reveal the design!
