Stamped Fabric

Let’s stamp some fabric!

Because that is totally a natural thought on the past Sunday afternoon.

First up – make a stamp. I decided to carve my stamp from a piece of insulation sheet foam. My hubbs had some extra pieces and it seemed like it would be a perfect texture and weight to make stamp. Strangely, he also owns a hot wire foam knife. So that is how that works out. I traced my shapes and tried to carve them out with the foam knife.

Start small. Circles. That seems like a safe bet.

I ended up using acrylic paints mixed with textile medium. 3 colors – orange, charcoal and blue. Three brushes mixed the paints, one per color, and applied the paint directly to the stamp design.

It should be good… if the ceiling fan doesn’t dry out the tiny amount of paint. But of course, turning off the fan is not an option. I live in Texas. We have more ceiling fans than sinks. Just sayin.

Hum. That seems to be working out alright. Now time to mix up some of the colors.

Ok. I got blue here. I got orange there. I have some charcoal as most of the larger circles. It is working out.

I’m loving the finished piece. It doesn’t have “depth” and “layers” but it is a nice start. I wonder what I’m going to add next? Maybe stamp some thinner, large circles by stampin an ole’ faithful solo cup? We shall see.
