Monoprinting on Commercial Fabric

I was organizing my fabric into storage boxes recently and found this commercial fabric. Not sure why I bought it. Definitely not my style so, I decided to monoprint on top of it.  I will share this technique in the class I'm teaching at Community Center of La Canada-Flintridge.

The first step was to monoprint orange fabric paint on top of the commercial fabric.

It wasn't interesting enough for me. So, I monoprinted on top using brown fabric paint. 

This piece is hanging on my design wall for now. Not sure if I want to leave it alone or continue marking it. To be continued...


  1. I love what you did here! Great job making an ordinary fabric into something extraordinary.

  2. Thank you for commenting, Eileen! I appreciate the support. I love playing around with dyeing/marking fabric.
