    I don't have pictures of the quilts I've done ... so, I'll practice with a picture I do have! Well, here's some of the cows anyway! I did an oil painting of one of them and hope to create an art quilt from it. Can't seem to duplicate all the colors I want in fabric paint. Has anyone figured out how to do that?

    checking on the cows!

    There's a medium that you can buy that allows you to turn any acrylic paint into fabric paint. I think it's called So-Soft. It's mixable with Plaid, Art Deco, Ceramcoat, etc. and let's you paint on fabric without it becoming really stiff. You might try something like that to add a few highlights/lowlights to your fabrics when creating your art quilt. Please practice on scraps first. Personally I prefer dry brushing very thin layers on until I get the look I want.

    Thank you, Raptureready, for the info. Looks like I have a lot of paint and fabric testing to do!
