I am calling this piece "Red Rocks" - inspired by our winter getaway to Nevada, Arizona and Mexico.
I began by painting colors we saw in the rock formations of the area. I used Pebeo Setacolor transparent paints, diluted 50% with water. Applied with broad strokes on damp fabric, as shown above. For this project, I laid cheesecloth over the broadcloth, painting two layers at once.This is what the broadcloth looked like after it dried, before ironing.
I also used Setacolor opaques to create depth. I do not dilute the paint for stamping - just use it straight from the bottle.
