Fabric Painting Workshop

At the Art Quilts Maine (AQM) meeting on Saturday we had a great fabric painting workshop. (I can't remember what kind of paints we used.) We have lots of great workshops. It's a great format for our meetings. Anyway, here's what I came up with. I like lots of it, though I wish I had gone in with more of a plan as far as color scheme, design or technique. This stuff is all over the board -- or parking lot in this case. I'll be delighted to just stash it away and find each piece for the perfect project some time in the future.

My painted fabric drying in the bright, warm, shiney sun!


Sun printed ferns


Green and purple, of course


Sonji-esque


Imagine this turned 90 degrees, and cut between the chocolately section and the tall land-scapey section


Sun printed keys


Hot!


More ferns

Beautiful! I especially like the sun painted fern and keys. I wonder if you could adapt to a project for the children?

What fun! I especially love the "hot" one and the lime-y ferns. Yummy!

I love the sun printed fern leaves. Over the weekend I must have been thinking of you because I dog-earred the Dharma catalog on the sun paints! Anyway, they look superfantastic!

I love the fern sun prints. I need to get out there and do some painting. Actually, we are having Phil Beaver next week at our guld for a lecture and two-day workshop so I will get some painting done then.
