Continuing Experimenting/Playing with Transfer Paints!!!

25th January 2014

I am finding Transfer Paints very challenging!!!

Took me 30 minutes sorting suitable fabrics ( I hope ) from my stash to play...

 ..tried the daffodil again....


..hope it looks better when stitched!

The colours are SO different when transferred.

A mixture of the red and yellow with some overlap...




...I don't know why the left side is paler, maybe I didn't heat it as much!!

Using paint left in the palette, I pressed the brush randomly on one side of the paper....


...folded and pressed...


..not enough paint so I blobbed yellow and red straight from the bottle, folded and pressed again..


..lovely and plenty of paint...


..the colours were so different and I tried really hard applying the heat!!

When I really looked at this I 'saw' a bowl of flowers so might try to stitch this impression.

I am determined to keep trying, it will not beat me!!

I think I may try adding a touch of black to tone down the colour but that is for another day.

I really need to stitch today.

PS
Any advice or help will be very gratefully received from anybody who has worked with Transfer Paints x
