Muslin Gone Wild!

It finally cooled off enough one Saturday to get outside and dye fabric! I started with a base color of Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow fabric dyes then added accents with Lumiere fabric paints on unbleached muslin. Both of these products are easy to use and heat set with an iron. Squeeze color straight from the fine tip bottles then paint, splatter or fold and dip. It's lots of fun and you get amazing results. I'll use these fabrics in my collage and mixed media work. Their unique designs make my work more distinctive and the process is so much fun!!
