Painting on muslin



I just started this piece. I painted acrylics on muslin. It measures approx 8 x 10 inches. I will make a mini quilt out of it, or perhaps stuff it for a pillow. Fun fabrics will be used no matter what I decide to do.

love this. Do you have to prepare the muslin in anyway before you painted it?

Tara Ross Studios said...

Yes, good question.

I gesso the muslin, then when it is dry I paint the muslin with acrylics.

thanks tara. I figured as much but wanted to ask. Do you know about this: http://dblogala.typepad.com/Subflyerprint.pdf
Thought you might be interested since you create visual journal pages.
