Ok, so I need advice on how to accomplish this pattern using dye, or watered-down Fabric paint... It's not my first time Dyeing something, but it's my first attempt at a pattern.

The fabric itself is white, and I need to do a mauve/pink castle-top pattern along some of the hems. I've got plenty of room to hang it up on a brace , so even super-messy ideas are perfectly welcome.


I'm going to sew the basic outfit first, out of cotton, (Because it would be accurate for a desert-climate dress) to get the hem right before I add colour, but the gold trima nd stuff (obviously) will go on later.

Eventhe craziest ideas are welcome!! Thankies!!

I was thinking I could either hang up the thing outside on a brace and dye-pain the design on, or I could make a giant foam stamp and use that...

How about a stencil and flexible fabric paint (or paint combined with textile medium)? I think dye would bleed too much.

that might work. My last experience with textile medium didn't come out pretty. Any tips?

I've never used textile medium myself. I've worked with dye a fair amount though and wouldn't use it in this instance because it would want to spread (unless it's significantly thickened).
Maybe try the stenciling board for some tips about textile medium: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=346.0
