Cotton + Silk Organza = Fun!


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE splashes of color - BIG splashes! With the cold and windy weather we are having I had visions of color bursts swimming in my head. Into the studio I went with a vague idea of how to get some color splashes onto fabric.
To create the colors splashes I layered 2 yards each of cotton and silk organza

I inserted whiffle balls under the fabric

Using Seta Color fabric paint I slathered it on!

It takes a while to dry so be patient! 

This is a detail of the cotton fabric

The paint makes a cool design when it mingles

Here the silk organza is laying on top of the cotton. You can see it is a mirror image and ready to be turned into an interesting piece of art!

This is the silk organza against a white design wall. It's very soft looking... what should it become? Any ideas!

  1. Such a great idea, it's been so cold that using dyes isn't an option yet. I'm probably going to get my paints out and try this!

  2. Wonderful. Were the fabrics dry or damp when layered?
