A wonderful selection of painted leaves! I had one more thought about the paint. I sometimes put an extra piece of cotton or muslin fabric under the fabric I'm painting. It acts as a blotter and may help with the paint bleeding. I also always have a "wipe up" cloth handy to soak up excess paint.
Good to know, thank you. The wipe-up cloths and blotters could become something beautiful too with little bits of all the colors.
Yes! They do become beautiful! I'm trying to figure out what to do with mine...
these are beautiful Susan, must have been fun to get together. i like the look of your painted leaves a lot and love the fan of maple leaves for your curtain from other day. today i tried some leaf pounding to get a natural dye colour for bckgrnd for my leaves, it worked out and was Very Fun
wow! It worked out very well. Beautiful leaf and flower images like they have been painted onto the fabric!
