Off The Shelf Fabric Painting
By: Sue Beevers
I have been reading this book all summer.
It has me so inspired to try nearly every technique it it!
Sue is so thorough in her instruction and class supply list.
There is an excellent chapter on Starch Resist...
Today I am trying the Flour Paste Resist Technique:
Mix 1 part flour to 1 part water
It will be like pancake batter
Cover your work surface with plastic
My big cake frosting spatula worked nicely to spread the flour batter across the surface of this sun dyed fabric.
Just a thin layer is necessary...
Don't glob it on like you are setting stones in a wall with mortar.
The Flour Paste will sit for a couple of days until it is dry...
The waiting is the hard part...
Then I will squish up the fabric and cause the dry flour to crack.
Then it is time to apply the textile paint or dye over the top...
I will share images as I proceed with this experiment.
