What Paints Can Do For Your Wearables

Have you ever thought about using paint products on your cloth?  The April program for HAFA (Houston Area Fiber Artist) was such a topic.  Barbara Jackson, a knowledgeable rep for Golden Artist Paints, presented fiber samples to show just how you could use these paints for wearable clothing.

There are a variety of colors and types of paints from Golden that can be used in various ways to achieve the look you want.

Some of their paints are based on historical facts, e.g. these fluid paints.

This direct painting on fabric gives intense shading.  All paints must be heat set after drying.

The 'handle' of the fabric isn't exactly soft and pliable but not hard enough to crack.

These fluid paints can be used much like watercolors.

These are air brush paints--interesting applications come to mind.

These paints have luminous advantages.

And then there is molding paste that be used for screen painting.

The sky's the limit!  Dare to Paint on fabric with Golden Paints.  it was very intriguing program.
