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

Those are beautiful!  I never would have thought to custom-paint a sheet pattern.  Gorgeous!

The sheets are gorgeous. I would have never thought of painting my own sheets.
