Nasturtiums - after laundering
After laundering, I would say there was very little fading, which is good. I think I will try to use a larger brush for any future pieces for the shading... the areas around the leaves and flowers look sloppy to me next to the areas where I used the larger brush to extend the background colors. And I'm not sure I will do any more to this, although it would be a good candidate for doing some free motion stitching to add details. All in all, this is a good technique and I'm glad I gave it a try, I can't wait to see what the rest of you do painting with thickened dyes!
