Polyester Satin

I gave it a try on  some heavy polyester satin to see if the shape change would hold up even on a heavy fabric. I used the same buttons on this piece and thought I'd try sprinkling paint on after it had dried. This is what I got.

The same button tied inside

And here is the satin after drying. The shape held beautifully.     

with brown silk paint that ran along the grain of the fabric (rats)

With Halo Green Gold (jacquard) in the shade

and in the sun

and with some Seta-Color dark green.

This technique could be useful in doing a 3-D piece.
