HI! I had this brainwave a few weeks ago, which was to use the legs I cut off some camo trousers (made the rest into a skirt!), and make a tote bag. My idea was to lay lace over the fabric, and sponge florescent fabric paint over it to get the lace effect onto the fabric. However.. the paint was tooooooo thin.. WAY too thin! lol, and the lace wasn't thick enough.. hence I ended up with a trouser leg with a splodge of yellow paint that looked like erm... vom!
Basically my question is.. would this be possible? the fabric is dark and I thought the colours would work well with the florescent so I'd effectively like to use this, but perhaps lighter fabric and thicker paint.. plus thicker lace would work better..??
OR - is there such thing as "SPRAY ON FABRIC PAINT"..?!
Or is there a way I can coat the lace so it's kinda waterproof..? hmm would that even work.. my guess is... no!
Any help would be much appreciated!
