One of the techniques we learned was to create a look of peeling paint. I LOVED the results. And true to our studio motto...."What if we did this on fabric????"
To be quite honest I wasn't expecting much but since I had done some soy wax techniques I had hopes that it would turn out like I saw it in my head.
So here it is....
Peeling Paint Technique
I started with a piece of hand-dyed red fabric (I'm partial to delapidated peeling red barns). On this piece of fabric I used a VERY old house paint brush (I even cut some bits out of it to make it even more irregular) and applied regular everyday valesine in light brush strokes.
