Hand Painted Fabric: Fine Tuning a Technique!

I'm intrigued with propping fabric up and painting it to see where the colors will meander and blend! I had a chance to play around yesterday morning and I feel that I'm fine tuning the image in my head to what happens on the fabric.

I'm narrowing down my "likes" to propping the fabric up with 2.5 quart plastic containers (like the kind you use to line a paint bucket) or 32 ounce yogurt containers. I'm using Seta Color paints from Dharma Trading Co.

... more play time scheduled for this afternoon!
