  • Help with Resist Painting

    Hi Everyone, My question is about what's the best way to paint a resist design on fabric. I've used the Elmer's blue glue, and it drives me crazy - the dye I used to paint over it washes out quicker than the glue!!! I used Dye-na-flow, and I now have a very faded piece of fabric with hard...

  • painting on fabric

    I have a question. I am fairly new at art quilting and totally unexperienced with paint. What is the best way to use a shell as a "stamp"? I live close to the Gulf and have a collection of sea shells and drift wood native to the area, (and others bought). What I want to do is an all over surface...
