I had some bits of velvet sitting around from making Crazy Quilt kits and thought "ooooh" Colourcraft's Pearl paints would look luscious on these!" Guess what… they do!Pastel Pearls, and some screens from Thermofax Screens. The one in this picture is one of their beautiful stock images, the rest are ones I drew myself and they made into custom screens!!
I carefully took of the screen and VOILA! I just want to say wow! This really looks fabulous.
The paint has a lovely shimmer that suits the dark velvet, and the way it sits on the velvet gives a lovely dimension.
I had to try some of my custom designs as well.
I was so pleased with the results, that I decided to try a linoleum block as well.
I think these worked great as well!
I think that the combination of the Pearl Paints on velvet really is a match made in heaven and something I will be exploring further.
See you next time!
