It’s been a while since I wanted to work on mixed media. See what I came up with;
Have to still get it framed but I wanted to share with you right away
Hope you guys like it.
I was tired of Cub‘s boring white canvas shoes.
So I decided to give it a new look. It took some acrylic paints, brushes and some imagination to turn them around. Check for yourself what I could achieve. Cub loved the new look too.
And the side view to show some shading
Hope you guys like the transformation Next time I might try some funky design.
Take good care of yourself and be safe.
Cub wanted to tie n dye a tee shirt for herself but I was a bit skeptical for her to use traditional methods which use boiling of dyes. Hence, we both tried tie n dye with acrylic paints.
First dip the tee shirt into the water and wring it dry. This will help in gripping the paints when applied. Once done, lay it flat on the plastic sheet that you have used to cover the working space. Now, pinch the t-shirt with from the center and swirl it as shown in the picture no. 2. Complete the swirl and it will look like a flat pan cake (picture no. 3). Now, apply rubber bands to hold this swirl in place (Picture no. 4). Also, these rubber bands would not allow the colour to be taken on the fabric (i.e. it will resist the colour). once done, apply acrylic colours (a little runny so that it will be soaked up by the fabric). Use whichever shades you like, we have used the primary colours. Once done, let the pan-cake to dry for a few hours. Remove the rubber band and see how the pattern has come out.
And this is how it turned out. More brighter colours would have been better, I guess. But cub was happy with even this.
That’s all for now. Ciao till the next post. Take care and be safe
