This evening I went out to dinner with friends which was great but I had to catch up tonight. So I got together some fabric paint and the ribbon flowers that I've been making.
Next I put more water on the flower and then painted it with a yellow fabric paint.
It didn't blend the way I expected it to so I watered the yellow paint and still the colors were not blending.
So I put water on the flower and then worked it between wet hands and that blended a little. Well it seems pretty enough but it will have to dry to see what it really will look like. I love doing experiments and I always seemed to get surprises.
I also dyed a small flower. After the last flower I went right to watering down the fabric paint and got the ribbon really wet. Then I spread the watered down paint directly on the ribbon with a brush and my hands. Then I rolled the ribbon attached to the flower back and forth on the work surface.
I really love how the yellow flower came out and the variations in shading by rolling the ribbon on a surface. Tomorrow I think I will try using Rit Dye in fuchsia and see what happens!
