These are 2 of 4 pieces I made in California. First, I did a drawing and made a freezer paper stencil of it. Then I painted on bleach discharge paste. After waiting for it to lighten, I washed it, and rinsed with a bleach stop product. Then, after drying, I painted my image with watercolor paints. I highlighted them with oil paint sticks, and crayons. Then I heat set it all, and layered and quilted them. Carolyn Villars, a very talented artist was the leader for this project.
I learned it's important to test for bleachability first. ( I didn't, mine wasn't good at releasing color. That's a good quality for a quilt fabric.) Number 228, 229.
