Today I painted a few new patches for Joseph's colourful coat. And this is the mess in which I work (and I seem to need it):
I use acrylics and disperse them on a smooth surface, then comb it with a selfmade plastic tool to create the patterns and transfer it by just pressing the cloth (old linnen bedsheet) onto the paint. It is much easier than creating a print which is meant to remain after washing. Mine would suffer a lot.
This is the palette.
I was desparate today, trying to iron a laser print onto cloth. Just a faint, dirty shadow! Looks like I have to buy this transparent foil for laser printers. Or is there a cheap and easy way? 50 years ago in school I learnt how to print with potatoe halves into which we cut patterns. But not photographs.
And this is the husband, watching O'Sullivan play a brilliant snooker in the UK Championship.
