Different ways to paint on fabric...
Bouquet of Roses painted with pearl paint and acrylic.
With cut lady's finger dipped in paint. Just like painting with small blocks.
Remember the ones with cut beans I had posted here
Using small round brush with just a single stroke.
Using dots to emphasize.
By dipping on two colours and using it in a single stroke.
Painting with lines.
Using three colours.
Using flat brush to shade
Separation of colours
Using coir pieces to shade the inside of the flowers and leaves
Hope this gives you an idea of the various ways one could paint on fabric.
Remember the fabric shouldnot be one that is to be starched.
After applying paint it has to dry atleast for 24 hours. To fix the paint onto the fabric, iron nicely on the reverse. Place a newspaper on the fabric so that the heat doesn't directly affect the fabric..which may not happen always. But thats safe for the paint.
Do try when time permits.

Great photos of your work Deepa! I have a very hard time with flowers. I haven't taken the time to try to learn to paint them. I have to try this painting on fabric. I did though make a quilt that I still have. I cut out different shapes of fabric, painted some and then washed them and sewed them together. I'll have to post that one day soon. Thanks for the inspiration. Good to have you back. Great work!
