I had some white sheets that I spruced up with colors.
First, I drew some basic shapes on paper.


Then, I  took some Dye-Na-Flow, mixed a camaieu of colors and diluted them more for the background.


I took all the paints and brushes outside, along with the sheets. I put the sheet up on the swing which was fine until the wind came. With more wind, I had to finish holding the sheet horizontally in front of me.



This is a picture of the work in progress with a plank to prevent the sheet from blowing away. As you can see, the Dye-Na-Flow really flows so it makes wide lines that are not always the same width. It's better to let the drawings dry before adding the color for the background if you do not want them to bleed into each others.



Once I was done, I let it dry for a couple of days. Then I ironed it to fix the colors and just to make sure, I put the sheets in the dryer.


Of course, the cat had to test it.

And a last view for a closer look at the cat our at the design, up to you! Wink

Thank you all.  Grin

You should try it, I'm sure you would like the results and have fun. Well, if you don't accidentally bump your clumsy foot in one of the paint jar, but even that wasn't so bad, it washes easily from skin.  Smiley

That is awesome! I'm going to have to look into those paints. There is a duvet in urban outfitters I want to recreate because it doesn't come in the right size for my bed. I bet this would work! You did a great job, and I love the colors.

How's it holding up in the laundry? I've got an ikea bladvass (see below) and I was thinking of coloring it at one point.

It seems to hold colors well once fixed but I can't be sure as I haven't washed it many times yet.
