I've been wanting to try stamping/rubbing on fabric. I have 3 small shiva paint sticks and this was the moment. Seriously, I need to fine tune my technique but what a lot of fun. YES! This will get designated space and time. I'll be looking to buy some more. Not sure where I got these but surely they must be in the city somewhere.
I taped the fabric down and slid the rubbing plate under. It can be taped down as well. Then I peeled the dried coating back from the paint stick and rubbed.
I moved things around by changing plates and colours to get a layered look. Then I dug out a few stencils and a stencil brush. The leaf is too 'in your face' and the faeries look a little sun burned.
As I was stenciling I had a thought about brush clean up. Stencils? hmmm? Well, I used the ubiquitous baby wipes and so far so good.
Everything is curing and then I'll heat set it. It'll be ready for the next layer, thread painting.
