Colouring Doilies

I received the latest issue of Somerset Studio Sep/Oct 2011 today & wanted to share one of the articles with you - it is done by Michelle Ward  (blog at michelleward.typepad.com). She shares some of her colouring techniques
  1. Row 1:   painted red, painted black & turquoise, used as a mask with black acrylic paint on craft paper, mask with black turquoise spray paint
  2. Row 2:   painted with acrylic, used as mask with turquoise paint on kraft paper, painted black & silver, covered with gesso then dry brushed with turquoise acrylic
  3. Row 3:   plain white doily, dyed with coffee, small edge dyed with coffee, used as mask with white paint on craft paper
Her recipe for coffee stained doilies:  brush doily carefully with instant coffee & let dry overnight.

I found these really interesting & hope you do as well

Currently working on some little books & these will be up on the blog this week

Bye for now
