In these last few warm days of fall I’ve been airbrushing. I’m happy to say these fabrics were popular at the booths I had this year and I needed to replenish my inventory. While the camera doesn’t capture the rich beauty of the metallic paint on black fabric, when seen in person, quilters and seamstresses fall in love.
While I’m sure others have used this technique, it was a discovery for me. I’ve used a variety of leaves to make these fabrics – gingko, cottonwood, oak and peony. Each shape has its own beauty. But what made these special was moving the leaves slightly between spraying each color. It creates a shadow effect that I find particularly beautiful. I’m so pleased with them that I wanted to share. Of course they are also posted in the airbrush section of the shop.
