Batik and Fabric Painting results

And the winners are:

 I prefer to use the TextilDesign Colorstop if I am using fabric paints,Jacquard water based resist if I am using Procion Dyes and the paintstiks for stencilling.

As you can see in the picture above, the colorstop didn't work very well with the dyes but works great with the fabric paint.

I also had some purple/pink mottled fabric that I had dyed a while back and wanted to do some batik on it:  Here is how it started out....

original colour

Added colorstop via a fern stencil and added red and red/black paint

After heat setting paint and washing

And last but not least, here is the flour paste resist with paint over it.

I will wait for a few days to let this "cure" before removing the resist.
(heat setting the paint would bake the resist and make it harder to remove)

Next I think I will have to go back to the discharging, I hear you can do that with the
flour paste as well.

Am really LOVING this low budget technique and  will get me kids to try some in the holidays.

Happy Quilting!
