H is for Hair Roller!
|On this piece I painted the fabric in layers going from light |
to dark using Colour Vie pigments. www.colourvie.com.
While the pigment was wet I used the end of the hair roller
to twist and scrape off some of the pigment. Then I used
the edge of the hair roller to create lines/slashes on top.
The hair roller is just another fabulous tool!
Registration is now open for an exciting variety of surface design
workshops in my studio here in Toronto. If you are ready
to create gorgeous printed cloth and find yourself in
the Toronto area during the months of March, April or May,
I would love to see you in my studio.
Enjoy unique and fun filled opportunities to take part in
hands-on and in-depth studies of fabric design!

|I used the "bristley" side of the roller to print/roll on the|
background red shapes. Then I used the circular end to print
some red and black circles.
|I gave the hair roller a little twist to create a slightly fuzzy|
edge on the black circles.
|The hair rollers come in a variety of sizes.|
|Here I printed the "bubbles" in black onto a fabric that I had|
previously painted in a gradation of burnt orange. I then used
the edge to add the fuzzy lines for directionality.
|Hair rollers stuck together for a more organized print.|
|I printed the white fabric with opaque white pigment,|
then painted over it in green/blue and used the hair rollers
to print again with metallic pewter pigment.
