1. Introduction: Hello all, Welcome back. This is Priya my content. In this class, I will be focusing on painting, process. On a cotton T-shirt. You can use any cotton material, but at least 60 percent cotton paper. I've also done it on a kitchen table runner. Have attached a copy of the pattern and a PDF file with the step-by-step instructions, which will help you follow along with this video for completing the project. For details about different methods of transferring the baton types of paint you can use basic techniques and setting the paints. Please watch the basics of fabric painting tutorial who had have included all those instructions and videos. Now let's get started. 2. Applying Easy Tack for stability: If the fabric is small, you can use the embroidery look for bigger fabrics. Or if you want to hold the fabric in place without moving, then you can use the easy tax-free. I'm using this cardboard for stability. I would say the cardboard with this tree, which makes the surface to key. I'm going to take it outside to split and we'll bring it back. Now this is pretty good. Now lay the fabric on it to stick on it and stay fixed. You can flatten any wrinkles and falls. This will make it easy for you to paint. Once you have completed the painting, we can put adult. Nothing will happen to the fabric and it stays in debt. 3. Tracing Pattern: I'm using a cotton T-shirt. I have r, That's the pattern in the files. You can print it out and transfer it using the graphite sheet or 300 for details and transferring the burden, please watch the basics of fabric building tutorial. I happened is then transferred arc that t-shirt and I place it on a cardboard, prayed with easy tech. Now the pattern is within like, so I might outlining it with a disappearing pen so that you'll be able to see the lines on the camera is. Now it's ready to paint. Let's paint the background first. 4. Painting Red Rose: To paint the background, I'm using such as green. Here. I have already sprayed this her face. So I'm dampened my stencil and loaded with subtle screen. How pretty the paint in the area close to the flower in a circular motion. And as you go away from the producer pressure so that the paint is applied slightly. You can spray the surface with water. You want the surface to be wised and slightly red for the background painting. This will help the spreading of the paint easily. So when you have the flower, the color is darker. And as you move away from the flower, the color fades of a delight. To have this effect. When you're closer to the design. Play more paint and apply more pressure. And asean will be reduce a faint and reduce the pressure. It's automates a good practice to paint the background first. This is because by painting the background, something can go over the lines. And inside that is NADH. And that's fine as it would be painting the design later. But if you paint the background after painting the whole design, then you have to be very good for the vineyard painting close to the design outline and see to it that the background color does not cover up the design. If you see here, I'm adding water to the beat. This will help me put a light coat of the band home kinda. Having enlightened man is better. You can always increase the strength of it by adding an underlay enough paint later. Matter if it's too strong, anyone be empirically movement. Let's look at the steps that follow to paint the flower. The first step will be based with the whole flower with the base color. In this case, I'm using today. So I built for the Cloud maturity. And then the second step, I add the shadows. So plugging this case, I'm adding modal or the docket for the center of the flower on the base of the flagella in the form of a cup. And also the sides of the pixels which are bended that, that, that does. Here, I'm here, I'm here. And then third step would be adding the highlight color. Here I'm using orange and I put the orange on the other sides of the petals, which are away from the shadows on the sides of the feathers, towards us, facing towards us. And then finally, add the highlights. You can use white auto mix up audience. Unlike foot up. For the highlights. You can do the whole dweller. Odd. You can do smart bot, that, that thing. So that means you can either do the whole base color and then the dark blue shadow colors, and then the highlight colors, and then define the highlights. Or you can take this model bought, finish the base code for shadows and the highlights. I'm go to the next, but now let's do the mentee. I'm applying some medium. Two. This would make it easier to play the paint over the whole area. We can use to extend medium or fabric medium on. If you don't have it, you can not lightly spray it with water to make the surface moist. How play the red colored, but as a base color on the whole flower. On one particular time. Here, I'm applying that with base color to the back buttons first. And then dappling the insight to aid the center of the flower with metal shadow color. Opera the same for the bottom of the flower in a cup shape on stroke on it. This indicates that the second layer switches, which are below on in the shadow. Then fill up the rest of the 80 up the flower with the base color. Wipe off the brush on the stroke back and forth at the place where the shadow color on the base for the meat. To blend them, put a smooth transition. The colors I'm using are red for the base color, Betty White automotive and flood the shadow color on right for the highlights. I'm writing mode of the shadow color to enhance the darkness. I am also adding it to the inner side of the site. But then, as I explained before, that area is in the shadow of the petals above it. Now I'm adding audience. I'm, I'm using this as a lighter shade of the base red color. I'm adding to the site for this. And that is facing away from the shadow color. That is the ADF and the back petals. Now I learned that I like colors. For that I'm taking right on the tip of a small brush and placing it on the side facing the light and pulling it towards the center. Putting the strokes towards the center of the petal. And then wipe off the brush and blend it in. So add some white and the tip. Pull the strokes in and then blend it in. Now had a few in the center of the flower inside. And the default mesh downwards is true on the injector. Finally, draw a curved line in front to add a petal facing forward and then blend the bottom edge of it into the center. Add some more white and blend it in to make a U-shaped. I'm enhancing some of the shadow and the highlight colors by adding water and the white colors as needed. If some of the colors have to be blended, then wipe off the brush and with an empty brush stroke back and forth between the two colors where they're meeting so that they get blended and there's a smooth transition. For the rods. I am using the base color red and filling up the whole guide. I do this for both worlds here. And then with the small amount of white on the tip of the brush, draw a line in the center in the code to indicate that there is updated. And then blend it and then add some darker color that is very wine at the base and blend it in. Once the rose is dry, I'm adding more highlights with white to make it brighter. The petals closer to us, we'll be more brighter than the ones facing the back. 5. Painting Blue Rose: Now let's do the blue flower. I'm using the medium blue for the base color. For the lighter blue. Fabric medium would apply. As I said earlier, you don't have to do this. If you don't have the median, you can always use the word display logic. Instead. I am now putting the back buttons here. I first applied the base color, the medium blue, and then hopefully the late blue on top and then blend it in. You can do the whole flower step-by-step, our blue each metal at the dam. Yet I'm just doing the first time this first doing the backward mapping of B is colored light color, and then I'll apply the darkest color inside. And the entity. I'm applying the darker color to the base of the flower in the form of a cop. Out. Once that is done with my brush and blend the two colors, the inner side of the vector will be darker than the size. Closer to us. The innocence of the vergence to indicate the darkness. Then. Now, let's add to that. Now for the highlights. Right on the edge of the line on the top of the Vettii and pulling the strokes for the public. And then blend. It has colonies directly to blend easily. Here at the bottom, center, both sides of the shadow. Now a few strokes in the center of the flower. Smallest buttons inside. Now, on the tip of the brush, downwards is true near the center. Finally, to adequately facing forward into the same depth and blended. Some of the darker and the highlight covers. In some places, some colors needs to be blended. Just an empty brush. Let's paint the leaves now. For the leaves, I'm using a combination of green, yellow, red, and white. Here, a few leaves by applying red and green, but the leaves turned out pretty muddy. And I'm not happy with it, so I will leave it for now. Finnish data leaves that aren't in the blue flower. And then I'll come back to paint them. For the leaves surrounding the blues. I will use yellow and burnt umber. I paint the leaves by adding shadow color to the diagonally opposite ends of the leaf and lighter color to the other two ends. You can also paint the whole leaf with the base color yellow, and then add brown shadows and highlights. You can try out any other color combinations, also. One dark and one light. That value. To give you a general idea, I apply a color to the fully, then add darker color and the two diagonally opposite sides of the leaf and highlight color. And then blend them in for a smooth transition. You can watch the basics of every painting tutorial for detailed step-by-step video on painting leaves. The leaves around the blue rows. In a similar way. As a base. And that is what I'm doing now. Then the shadows and yellow. I'm also fixing previously painted. You can make it as a mentor. I'm Joe. 6. Painting Stem & Final Highlights: For painting the veins, I'm using my liner brush. You can also use a number 1 round brush. I'm adding a few drops of water to the brown color paint. Here I'm using burnt umber to make it into an inky consistency. The paint has to be a little watery for this to take place. So add a few drops of water. If your paint is thick, then as you pull out the brush and the paint, roll it so that you get a thin tip. And then this paint all the veins and the stems. It has to be consistency for this. Let's have a closer look. Outlining. We check to see if I'm adding some white highlights on the sides. I'm blending it in. Then using using the leaves and adding lanes inside the leaves. It's easy. With the fabric mockups. You can also use a round brush and draw the outlines. Just leave that leaves the dotted lines. I'm also enhancing some branches here. Then I add a few dots in the center of the rule is indicating. And then you can also add some dots in the center. 7. Conclusion: Thanks for watching the video. Hopefully it sparked some interest and you would like to try out fabric painting. You can do similar designs on tablecloths, deep dives below colors are just any piece of garden flood. If we choose a darker color fabric, then just apply a layer of white on the whole design, let it dry and then paint your design. I would be happy to see your completed projects here.
