FolkArt ® Fabric™ Paint - Brush On - Magenta
Item #4403
Finally, a fabric paint that isn't stiff! FolkArt Fabric paint is specially formulated to absorb into fabric -- so it feels softer and flexes with the fabric without flaking off. Perhaps best of all, the colors are highly pigmented which means they look great on dark fabrics. FolkArt Fabric paint is permanent on textiles, once dry, painted fabrics can be machine washed in cold water.

Instructions

  1. For the plaid shoes: Load half the paintbrush with Magenta paint and the other half with Yellow Light paint.
  2. Paint vertical stripes down the front of the shoe. Leave a little space in between the stripes.
  3. Using a detail brush and Yellow Citron, paint narrow strips in between the first painted stripes.
  4. Using the same detail brush, paint horizontal stripes over the vertical stripes. Use Magenta and Yellow Citron for the horizontal stripes.
  5. Use gem glue to attatch a crochet flower and gem.
  6. For the large berry: Using a medium paintbrush and Magenta paint, paint a wide heart shape for each berry you want to paint. Add paint across the top to fill in the heart and for a berry.
  7. Blend a tiny amount of White paint into the Magenta paint. This will create a lighter shade. Using the same brush, paint over one side each of the berries with the lighter color. This creates a highlight as if the sun was hitting the berry.
  8. Using the detail brush and white paint, paint the seeds of the berry over the highlighted areas.
  9. Paint stems using Yellow Citron and Hauser Green paint. Allow to dry.
  10. Glue tiny gems to the shoes with gem glue.
