Do you remember fold-over paint technique you did when you were little? I love this technique  because there is no way to get two exact painting and you always get surprised when you unfold the paper!

I have done this fun painting technique on a garment that is very “IN”… The white blazer. It’s a very easy DIY project, with a surprise effect that everybody can do!

Process:

1. Fold in half the spot you want to place your painting. In my case, I fold it in the center of the back.

2. Pin the center of the back to use as a guide.

3. Place your garment on a surface you can clean easily . Throw the paint on the middle of the back … the more quantity of paint the thicker the drawing you will get.

5. Unfold the blazer being careful not to stain anything else. Let dry well.

* Look at the instructions for your textile paint, you may have to iron the paint after dry to set well.

And done!! A very different blazer with a back that will awake curiosity!

You can use this same technique on T-shirts, tops or other clothing. You can also mix colors for a butterfly drawing effect. I wanted to do an abstract and minimalistic drawing concept, contrasting white with black only.

I hope you like this idea of ​​using this technique to paint your garments … And you’re welcome to share your results with all of us on facebook!

Here below, some illustrations I’ve done with this same technique on paper, using watercolors.

      Hi Eli! I don’t think is a good idea, since it can fade, wash out or flake and brake… it’s better to use a product special for clothing, as a fabric painting. You will be happy you used the right painting, specially after washing your garment 😉
