Playing with Paint
I am being careful with this quilt- I am actually making a sample to test out paint and other options for the circles I want to stencil on Blue Tsunami. I want a sort of translucent, pearlescent look. I had several options in my studio to try, and I may be looking for other options on the web.
Here's the sample, before the paint has tried. If you click the picture, you should be able to read what I used on each circle.
I must not have shaken the Lumiere enough, that is a water ring around the circle. At this point, my favorite is #4, with #3 coming in a close second. And #5 is definitely out, I want a white look,and the metallic silver is way to dark. Let me know what you think!
Once this dries, I'll heat set the paint. Then I'll have a sample to use to try out my thread options
