|Shades of blue|
There's a story here. OF COURSE there's a story here!
Last post, I tossed out a quick sunprinting tutorial.
Since I had another plexiglas panel on hand - and a ready to go piece of fabric - I figured I'd paint up a piece in complementary colors to the first.
|Plastic text resist|
Mixing it up this time with a graphic element, using the plastic letters from a sheet of cake decorating stencils.
(No, I don't do cake decorating. It's the thrifty artist in me grabbing creative supplies when I see them at ridiculously appealing prices.)
I followed along in my usual process, but forgot one important step....
PERIODICALLY CHECK THE WEATHER while the fabric is drying.
Yah - you guessed it - started POURING with rain - in the way only tropical Florida can do.
Rivulets of blue Dye-na-Flow paint were streaming across my patio!
And there was me in a tizzy moving the dripping panel under cover,
hosing the paint off the patio and out the door,
before my concrete developed a custom paint job!!
|Complementary colors - Go Gators?|
All ended well - the fabric still dried showing the resist shapes from the letters.
Even if the three blue shades were more blended than intended.
Simple things make me so happy!
