    i played with the sharpie 18 pack of colors. all ran, some nicer than others. would like to know how to control the flow. the fabric stains do not run.(also by sharpie) and the silver did not run either. i think for me it is easier to work with acrylics, but i would like to mix the two.

    Oh how about an AC unit with the cellophane "blowing" from the unit?

    Could be fun! We were quite hot today after yesterday's rain and wind. We have had roof and interior damage to our home due to all the heavy rain/wind we have had this month. Friday the contractors will be repairing the roof and after the 4th we meet with our contractor to begin planning all of the extensive interior work that has to be done. One bonus is we get brand new kitchen and dining floors. Lots of fun ahead!

    For some reason my computer would not let me post yesterday so I want to say welcome to mamajack and Flo. The "Art Challenge" is fun and has a free spirit feel.......looking forward to seeing what everyone creates for July.

    In college I took a course on stained canvas, just mix a small amount of acrylic paint with lots of water and layer the applications of colors, dry completely between layers.
    I actually hosed off the canvases in the driveway to clean them. works well. Use a flat watercolor synthetic brush for the best control. Give it a try and heat set the results for regular weight fabric. Put your prewashed & dried fabric on a hoop to work from. I always stretched the canvas and hosed it off to dry and tighten. Just thinking you may want the control of the fabric in a hoop, wash the fabric and dry it before staining.

    i haven't tried that technique, but it sounds very interesting. does it produce a watercolor effect? or is it more like a tie-dye?
