art cloth

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the art cloth needed more. Using paintstiks is a really slow procedure on such a big piece of fabric - 5 yards - so I decided to do stamping. I wanted to use matching stamps with the spirals so I opted for using a yoghurt container. With a foam brush I applied Lumiere paint on it - in different red/silver/blue colors and stamped circles in a random order. See picture:

Better, but not yet complete. Although I prefer using handmade stamps, there is also a commercial stamp with ovals with I really love. I stamped - again randomly - using a green Lumiere:

This was the last addition to the artcloth. I really like the way it turned out. It would be a waste to cut up a piece of fabric like this, so I intend to use it to make a duvet cover out of it.

It turned our great, isn't it interesting how the stamping has just really 'made' the piece.
