So, I made another zippered bag…I need a lot of practice:)
With this one, I used my Gelli Plate to paint the fabric, once I had my outside pieces cut out. (Muslin) I added a textile medium to the acrylic paints, and then heat seat them when dry.
The textile medium assures a soft finish, rather than a hard dried paint that can crack. It is also washable. I practiced on some scrap pieces of muslin first, trying to decide on the color and basic tools for the design.
The colors and prints are limitless with the Gelli Plate….
If you’d like to see the tutorial I used for this bag you can find it here!
The zipper was a little tricky for me, as a beginner, but I learned a little something each time.
Gelli Plates are rather addictive…I really LOVE the way Distress Paint naturally moves on the plate creating pattern before you even “work it.” I also like using just one color…especially when adding DOODLES:) If you’ve never worked with Distress Paints, I highly recommend them…
