Hi my dear friend!
I have to admit last two weeks I had a real fun creating unique pieces for my brilliant customers. I've made more of my hand painted toys and couple of hand painted t-shirts. All of them are going to be presents, toys for arriving babies and t-shirts are wedding favors for kids, how nice! Each of them is one of a kind and totally personalized with words or names.
I have already introduced you little elephant Bibi in my last post and these are puppy Tootie and bear Rony. Puppy Tootie is a cutie with a lovely headband which can be taken off and a bear Rony has a cute little baseball hat and a pompom tail.
Some of the photos of the newest hand painted t-shirts have been already posted on my Instagram and Facebook page and a few people were asking for tutorial on how to paint on clothes.
I use special colors for fabrics which after they dry need to be fixed with the iron so that they don't wash off. One trick I use is also that I first draw on the clothes the image I want to paint with a special marker which evaporates after a while or can be removed with a wet piece of cloth. I sometimes use wet Q-tips for small area I want to clean. After I have the drawing, I use different sizes of brushes I usually use for painting with acrylics on canvas and those special colors for fabrics. My favorite brand so far has been Javana but I use other brands I find in local art supplies shops too. I will for sure make that tutorial and post it everywhere to encourage you to try it :D
Share your hand painted projects with me please!!!
Sending you my smile with love,
