Week 17 - Monoprints and Manipulated Fabric Panel
This week we were using acrylic paint on fabric to create different effects. We started by stippling some calico with a dry brush using 2 colours - blue and yellow in my case, resulting in lots of green and looking like a flowery meadow! Then we moved on to using a diffuser and thin paint to give an effect like airbrushing, holding a piece of ripped paper in front of the fabric to act as a mask so that some parts stayed white. Then we moved on to a way of making monoprints on glass. We put…
Студия Модного Кроя Ирины Сычёвой. Конструирование, макетирование, технология – для профессионалов и «с нуля»

Monday Morning Inspiration
Good Morning and a very happy Monday to you all! For those of you in America, I hope you survived the Thanksgiving holiday and that you are now ready for all that December holds :) Today's inspiration post is just some bits and pieces that I found and thought were rather fun. Most are ideas for manipulating fabric into something a little different, like this first idea of adding horsehair as a design element. Add interest to an overlay on a skirt. Rather than allow the folds of this circular…
