The fabric paint was quite thick and I resisted the temptation to add some water to it. Next time I will try another brand and be sure to use gloves, as this was pretty messy. The plastic laser cut template was almost impossible to clean when changing colours, so perhaps using multiple freezer paper cut-outs is a preferable technique. Anyway, here is how they turned out.
Happily, my husband loved the result. Also they suit the colourful Ghanaian bed spread that is arriving in our trunks. Hooray!
But wouldn't you know it after some weeks with these curtains, my hubby has come to the conclusion that we need curtains for the whole house... and perhaps my curtains in our room are not thick enough... sooo we need to go back to the fabric shop... No complaints on my part, as I can use the curtains for the backs of pillows I have envisioned for the living room sofa, I got to try out fabric painting for the first time and I will get to stay warm in the evenings hidden behind my new curtains.
Have a strategic day!
