First I played around with diluting them with water and brushing them on dry fabric. I added some salt (kosher) to the wet paint for fun. These inks blend very nicely. And it takes a lot of water to dilute the color.
So I wet a piece of white cotton and crumpled it, then spread it out onto a paper bag. I dropped inks onto the fabric and let them spread.
The only thing I didn't like about this was that the Pearlescent Gold cracked and peeled off after heat setting. In their defense, the company says that the Pearlescents aren't designed to withstand high temps or washing.
I don't usually like pearlescent paints anyway, but I just could not resist the gold. It's been so dark and dreary....
This is the bag that was under the fabric when I dropped on the paints.
