This is just fabulous! I will never look at velvet paintings the same way again! How do you plan to clean it?

I ended up parting with it, but I think dry cleaning/or spot cleaning would be the only way!  Definitely would NOT want to submerge that baby in water, ha!

Wow do you ever have a good eye for seeing potential, I would never have thought of using a velvet painting this way! The dress is gorgeous, fits like a dream, and I love the skirt fabric. Beautiful work!

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!

I love it, I am such a fan of velvet paintings. I think I would love it in Elvis!
