Kodiak Bear Paw Quilters Annual Quilt Show
I have been playing with Decolorant and paint with stencils this week, as a means of procrastinating binding and hanging sleeves! I had some ugly scarves that I experimented with. I used spray decolorant on one which was a mistake-it crept under the stencil. Then I did three with plain decolorant paste. I was working on a table with batting, covered with plastic. I guess paper or cotton underneath would be better. The paste went through the scarf and seemed to just sit there on the plastic. You can't move the scarf until it is dry, also. Anyway, one of those is beautiful. Then, I used yellow Decolorant and a leaf stencil on a red scarf. That one is pretty awesome. Finally, I printed Lumiere paing with a stencil. those turned out OK, but it is hard to apply the correct amount of paint. Tomorrow, I will take some photos and post them.
