Coming Soon! Textile Art Prints

Untitled92

I’ve been working on something new for Musical Color Studio– art prints (on paper) of my textile art (dyed or painted fabric work).

…So instead of selling a textile wall hanging, for hundreds of dollars, I can make open-edition prints of details from the fabric itself (for a much lower cost, of course!)

The prints look very similar to the fabric originals, with the warp and weft texture of the fabric and the rich colors of the dyes, so when they are hanging in a frame, it just looks like a framed piece of textile art! What do you think? (I’ll post again once they are available in my shop!)

New Hand-Painted Tote Bags!

Now available on my Etsy shop, Musical Color Studio:

To give you a step-by-step process, here is a description of how I make a hand-painted tote bag….

1. Buy yards of fabric, wash the fabric, iron out the wrinkles in the fabric, cut out each bag and its straps.

2. I spend time thinking up and planning the design for the bag. I usually sketch a concept, mix paint colors, experiment, etc. For each design, I also cut out my own stencils and patterns to use while painting! (Which means everything is exclusively designed by myself, the artist, and I use no mass-produced images or material to create the bags)

3. Then I paint the bag (which takes me at least 2 hours, minimum, depending on the size and design).

4. Once the paint has dried and I heat set it, I then sew the bag and straps to turn it into a final product, ready for you to use!
