Painted fabric

A couple of friends were over to have a play with Sharpie Permanent Markers. I think it is a blast that these "Permanent" marker bleed when you add alcohol to the painted surface and create nice patterns.  I started with a painted background that's on a synthetic fabric.

I drew squiggly lines with the markers and then added the alcohol. I like it much better now.

I meant to take pictures, but we were so caught up in experimenting that I forgot.

Great results, I like this idea! I sure like your quilts posted below too! (sorry about the deleted post, I should make better use of the preview option so that I don't leave words out!)

Good to know about those permanent markers. Their permanence also isn't lightfast. Washfast, they are. Anyhow, I like what you've done.
