I’ve been playing with Liquitex paints, while on vacation. My ultimate goal is to be able to use Liquitex to enhance some quilts, as well as pursue some mixed-media quilting projects. This “playtime” painting, while on vacation was simply quick and easy project, on just about anything I could find. I certainly enjoyed painting on an old palm frond, that I found at the beach (photo above).
And I had fun painting on some very old t-shirts, as well as some cotton scraps. Can you guess what the cotton scrap was originally cut for?
I am far from being an artist. I’m positive I flunked art in Kindergarten, and every art class thru High School. But I certainly did enjoy playing with Liquitex and Paintstiks while on vacation. With a bit more practice time, I think I’ll be ready to enhance some quilts with these artistic tools. And, with luck and more practice, pursue a couple of fibre-arts projects I have in mind.
Do you play with Liquitex and/or Paintstiks? Love to hear your thoughts about these artistic tools.
