Pensei que fosse tecido
thank you for showing in the video but I cannot see very well the name of the pebeo setacolor I ve got light fabrics on the bottle and it does not work on my canvass where I want to add it to a painting - could it be that it has the be 'transparent' setacolor i.o. light fabrics and that it only works with silk or cotton or maybe japanese paper - I am looking for quite some time now and really hope I will find a way to use it on canvass -thank you for your advice
@Karen Eckmeier - thank you - I have indeed used more paint and put it under a strong UV lamop - it works much better now - have a nice day and success with your projects !!
Hi Rita, thanks for your question. It's important to have the transparent seta color paints to create the sun prints, no matter the fabric. The Seta Color opaque paints will mix and paint better on canvas, but will NOT give the sun print effect. Although I haven't tried it, when you use the transparent paints, don't mix in too much water - that will make the colors stronger and perhaps show up better on the canvas. Let me know how it goes!
What a lot of inspiration!!! ... filled not only with techniques, but continuously sprinkled with ideas!! Thank you Karen!! Can't wait to try this when the sun gets stronger!!
Thank you Marta for ALL of your wonderful comments on my videos. Hope you have fun with all the different techniques!
Too much fun! I'm so inspired!!!!! Excellent video!
Fantastic. I’m learning so much. Thank you
New sub here...but I got a marathon going watching your vids!! Thank you thank you for expanding my mind... I'm a quilter from way back, but it's newly jazzed and it's all your doing Karen!! Fabulous!!!
wow! Thank you Nalla....welcome back to the quilting world and have fun!!!
Could you ever make a shirt with this?
I haven't used the color tissue paper on t-shirts or clothes, but I've made several sun print painted t-shirts without the tissue paper. It's great fun! I've had my grandchildren painting t-shirts and hats too on several occasions and they are so proud to wear their sun painted creations.....using ferns and flowers and whatever they find instead of the tissue paper.
Can't you just buy your own fabric and treat it with soda ash to take on paint? I'm also wondering if you can put something on it to prevent fading. Thank you
Yes, of course you can treat your own fabric, simply by washing it. It just needs to free of chemicals, etc to receive the paint on the surface. The colors don't fade any quicker than commercially printed fabrics, just keep them out of direct sunlight if it's a wall quilt.....for clothing, skip the dryer and hang dry.
Question.....how can you prepare fabric for dyeing or sun printing?
The fabric needs to be washed with Synthrapol, a liquid cleaning agent that gets rid of the sizing and other chemicals in the fabric. This prepares the fabric to accept the dye or paints. I skip that step and buy PFD fabric (Prepared For Dyeing). Kona PFD Cotton/bleach white by Robert Kaufman is what I use. Have fun!
I am guessing that once you get these beautiful colors, you cannot wash the fabric? I was curious if it washes away if you quilt and wash! Lovely though thanks for sharing!
Wow-you must be in the same room that was so fast! Thank you-I did (duh) hear you say that you heat set them later-so brilliantly colored-thanks for sharing. I have subscribed to see more happy work :-)
Don't worry! You can wash the fabrics and the colors stay true and vibrant. I wouldn't wash them too often though and opt for air dry as opposed to a dryer.
Will this work with Dye-Na-Flow paints on silk?
Thank you for the quick reply, Karen. Yes, they are sun sensitive so I am excited to give this a try.
I have not worked with Dye-Na-Flow paints. If they are not sun sensitive then you will not get the same results as with the Seta Color transparent paints. Give it a try though and see what happens!
Oh this is so GREAT! I'm a quilter too and I'm so happy to have found you. What an inspiration! Thank you! Beautiful beautiful work!
I am soooo impressed! I will definitely give this a go.Wish you had listed the names of the solutions and fabric and types of brushes.....other wise will have to go through the entire video just for that info...LOL Also where do you buy your fabrics?
Karen Eckmeier z
I use Robert Kaufman Kona PFD (prepared for dyeing) Bleach White fabric. Quilt stores usually carry it. I buy mine wholesale by the bolt. You can get it from Dharma Trading online at retail. I use all types of brushes. They vary from foam to bristle....rollers, sponges...it really depends on what I'm painting and how much paint I want on the brush and how quickly I want to get it to the surface. Not sure what you mean about "solutions"....the paint from the bottle is usually mixed with half water, but if you want stronger more vibrant colors, use less water. I hope this helps Lauren. Have fun!
