Read through all the instructions first before starting this craft. It is recommended that you read through the Fabric Painting Basics before starting this project.

Step 1

Take any one of your chosen pieces of colourful fabric which has been painted on and place it onto plastic sheeting with the painted side facing upwards.

Using a medium sized paintbrush, paint over the entire cloth with your chosen colour paint, preferably using a different colour to any colour already used on the fabric.

Step 2

When painting over the fabric, use thick, even strokes, but not so thick that it becomes too shiny, otherwise you won't be able to see the design properly.

Step 3

After the fabric has been painted over, use the back tip of the paintbrush to gently scrape a design of your choice, let your imagination go wild!

Step 4

If you don't like your design you can easily paint over it again, and again! The end result will be a beautiful crafted design made from old fabric which would have been left laying around or thrown out in the trash!
