Textile Course in Cornwall with Anne Griffiths

3rd March 2019

1st day was learning about using devore paste on silk/viscose velvet....

....small leaf shape stencil placed on the back of the fabric, secured with masking tape, devore paste applied, dried with a hair dryer then ironed until pasted area was brown.....



....rub fabric to remove velvet fluff and this is the result!



Here I used a template and the same procedure....


...result...



...after painting with Koh-I-Nor paint.


I used a freezer paper stencil for this and much more successful than a card stencil when fine detail is required, this is ready for rubbing to remove velvet...


....ready for dyeing/painting and stitch.


An enjoyable day learning to use a new , versatile product.

Storm Freya is just starting so happy to be in the studio!
