Blue Glue


Judy of Color My World blog had a post about using Elmer's Blue Glue with rubber stamps. Her fabrics were wonderful. I decided to give it another try. Years ago we did it but just drew lines with the glue-not to my liking, because they were so bloppy. The old glue was more green now than blue but never letting details stop me when I want to do something, I went ahead with a painted piece of fabric. After the glue dried, I painted with a sponge and 2 colors. When that dried, I did a wash of paint. After it dried and was heat set, I washed it to remove the glue. It's a bit irregular but better than the glue lines. Must buy some new glue.

Cool! I saw her same post and am planning to try some of that technique this weekend. I had only done it in lines, like you, before.

Hey Sandy! Remember me from the Ventura County Wearable Art Guild? I was so bummed when you moved away, but I just found you via Judy Rys' blog. I saw Ellen in her new shop recently during an Art Walk, and put photos on my blog. See them here: http://www.xanga.com/weavingtheweb/625350225/ventura-harvest-artwalk.html
Glad to know you are out there still doing your wonderful fiber art! (My last name is different now because I remarried.)
