Tantalising textures and fun with transfer paint


Wow the girls at Fibre and Stitch have put out some wonderful stuff in their first edition of the e zine. First the Lutradur and Lace and now I have been playing with pelmet vilene and lace painted and gilded and free motion stitched and then yesterday i played with some transfer paints I have had for ever and not got around to using, it is such a surprise when they actually transfer from the paper to fabric. I think I need to get a finer polycotton as the only one I could find is a bit soft. They didnt scan very well either as they are brighter than this, but I am on a roll now and have paper and paint all over the floor using the different techniques.
No walk this morning, still blowing a gale, another foal born this morning too, a poor little scrawny colt who will need a few days of mothers milk to straighten out.
We are also off to lunch so I am getting this up a bit early.

I loved seeing your work Penny. That turquoise and blue stransfer painting is just wonderful. If you have any creamy or white polyester fabrics, have a play with those too as they take much better than the polycotton, but do remember to use parcment or greaseproof paper on top before ironing. Have you tried to print on computer paper or kitchen paper with the used papers?

Wow, love that pelmet vilene piece, it's so textural. Will you do anything more with it?

hi Penny, I have just tried emailing you but it bounced - maybe you have changed your address. Do you still have my address. Can you email me? A in Canberra
