AHH yes. so, opening night the whole cast/crew goes out to friendly's and walmart and we basically go crazy. and whilst we were being crazy in walmart, i peeked at the fabric remnants (as always) AND I FOUND THE MOST AWESOME FABRIC ON EARTH. and i'm so excited to begin sewing!!!
the "mushy" is probably from doing wet on wet. (we've been working with watercolors in class lately) and i personally like the effect, especially here..but if you did want a crisper contrast, you should wait for the bottom color to dry and then paint over it. i'm always too impatient for it to dry..
but it definitely looks great! and good brushes definitely help. i just got a new set
