Fabric painting is the application of specialized paints to fabric. It is possible to paint any fabric, but tightly woven natural fabrics like cotton and silk are easiest to decorate if a crafter is attempting to create images. Some people use paint on fabrics for other effects, such as splattering or sponging, and these are less dependent on the type of fabric or paint for clean effects. Many different looks can be achieved with paint on fabrics, although some are more common than others.
Fabric painting is a great way to add new life to plain old t-shirts, boring upholstery, or any bland fabric that needs a boost. Mastering the art of fabric painting allows you to become your own fashion or interior designer by painting your ideas into existence. Learn to develop a design, trace it onto any piece of fabric, and paint away using some knowledge and the correct technique acquired by a professional trainer.
For a small outlay on a few colors and a suitable brush, fabric painting opens up endless opportunities for transforming your wardrobe and your home. It enables you to create one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art (t-shirts are the most common) or to design some special cushion covers, curtains, or a wall hanging. It involves immense creativity but beginners must keep the intricate details in mind like always washing (remove the starch) and iron the fabric before using. These can be learnt over time and practice, but indeed learning fabric painting can be immensely fun.
