color catcher play

Thought I'd show how I played to create the fringe on my latest project!

I save the Color Catchers I use in my laundry. Each load I wash gives a subtly different result and that's interesting.

After a paint session I rolled up a sheet...

...and dunked the end in my dirty brush wash water.

Then a daub in the leftoever paint pallette. Quickly though - 'coz those acrylic paints dry fast.

The paint draws up into the wet fibers - sometimes another dunk in the water and paint is needed to get the flow going.

Lay flat on a plastic covered surface to dry and it's ready to cut, stitch and apply to the project!
