I started painting onto fabric to try and colour the fabric without adding applique adding more bulk and layers to it. I think this worked well as an experiment and I would like to try this using animals as the subject maybe to see what these end up looking like.
The dormouse went well but the paint did run a little into the weave of the fabric, so I think maybe trying a different type of paint may be useful to try and contain that a little more. I think this would have been a lot better if it had stayed in the lines. This was watercolour, so I think try something thicker next I think.
