Transfer Painting

Green powdered transfer paint from Omega Dyes sprinkled onto wet paper, left to dry and ironed onto 100% polyester fabric.

The same ironed onto synthetic velvet produces a softer effect. I love these beautiful surfaces - almost too nice to embellish with stitch - and I like this green so much more than that of the other branded transfer paints I have tried - either green products or by attempting to mix greens.

I love it when people post to my blog ... then I can see what others are doing! Your work is amazing, excellent use of colour and creative design.

It's a lovely green! I will have to get some Omega transfer paints, they must be the only ones I haven't tried over they years (smile) I can see you love transfer painting too.

Yes, you will have to get some Margaret! They are great fun to work with - a bit like "Brusho" but colourfast when transfered to the fabric.
