raw edge applique


 I experimented with Brusho Crystal Colors by Colourcraft C & A LTD, and  wanted to see how the paints acted with varying amounts of water and the thickener.

I mixed up the paints on a paper palette and used several  small pieces of tone on tone ivory as waste cloth. 
I dried the scraps of cloth and heat set with a very hot iron. 
All the fabrics in the raw edge applique piece, except the stems, are the painted cloth.




I loved using up some of my old buttons


and adding embroidery.

 
The paints were great and I will use them again.
