Process:

1. Insert the plastic bag in the middle of the shirt so the paint wont go through.

4. Add a little more paint in water color, start drawing fine zig zag lines. To achieve this you can make “imperfect” strokes holding the brush as far as possible from the tip. It dosn’t matter if you make larger strokes than others, it’s all about making it “imperfect” .

5. To give it more life, use pure undiluted paint and draw over some lines to accent a little more.

I hope you enjoyed this post “how to make marble print”. Remember that there is room for errors, as there are many types and colors of the marbles. You can do a thousand versions and all will be right. If you still don’t dare, practice on a piece of fabric before. This way you can see what you like and what you don’t.

    Me ha encantado esta técnica, el efecto es genial! Tengo una pregunta: de qué tipo de tejido es la camisa que usas? Tengo entendido que en algodón la pintura se fija mejor, pero quería hacerlo con una camisa de “gasa” (éstas típicas de h&m) que tengo muerta de risa… Y no sé si quedaría bien. Muchas gracias!! :D

    PS: me he apuntado un montón de ideas, tu blog es una maravilla!

      Hola M. Mi camisa es de viscosa con algodón. Utilicé una pintura para fibra natural. En tu caso, te recomiendo que mires la etiqueta de la composición, creo que lo mas probable será poliéster o poliamida. En tal caso tendrías que buscar un tinte o pintura que sea apto para esta fibra ;) Mucha suerte guapa!! gracias por leer mi blog! me alegro que te guste :)
