19th August 2012: Belated progress pics - Kimono clouds (stage 2 - painting) Stage 2: trace the designs onto a white poly/cotton poplin with a tailor's chalk (colouring crayon works just as well).
The paints are Dylon Fabric Paints. I mixed the colours with Dylon Shade Creator, which gives a purer and finer shade than you can achieve by mixing the colours with white paint. If two colours are mixed with white paint (e.g. red, blue and white to create lilac), it tends to become murky.
After painting and drying overnight, the colours were fixed by ironing as hot as the fabric would allow (test it first!).
