A relaxing activity … Creativity and mindfulness … A productive process … Unique designs ... These are just some of the terms that can be used to articulate the benefits of fabric painting. When you do fabric painting, you can
easily relax and focus your mind,
experiment with your creativity,
produce your own fashion design and
share fun and quality time with your kids.
And fabric painting is easy to do - you don’t need any special talent or qualification to create colourful and unique designs on clothing and other fabric items. This book, The Basics, is the first in a series of guide books I have written to help you quickly and easily access the techniques involved in fabric painting. It contains all information a beginner needs to get started. Right from the start, the focus is on doing, experimenting and experiencing. You both get active and your hands dirty. :) ‘Part One: Practising fabric painting’ is a practical introduction to fabric painting. You work on some example projects so you actively get to know the fabric-painting techniques. In ‘Part Two: The components of fabric painting’, I give you the necessary basic information about the main components of fabric painting and answer any questions that might come up while you are busy practising. When you’ve finished reading the book, you’ll have a good feeling for what fabric painting is and how you’ve responded to it. I am confident that by that point you’ll be ‘hooked’ on the activity; you’ll feel relieved in knowing you’re able to actively relax with fabric painting whenever you’re stressed. Relax creatively with fabric painting! And have fun!
