Designing comes natural for this mature and sassy girl. Colette creates designs with a unique twist on the retro looks of the 60's and 70's. Elegant designers such as Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent inspire her, but Colette's favorite designer is Mary Quant.
You too can create a clean, colorful, vintage look with these fabric paint tips and tricks:
Wash the garment prior to painting it. This will reduce shrinkage of the garment after the paint it added.
Take the time to iron the fabric well. Wrinkles can create havoc on a design.
To keep paint and markers from bleeding through a garment when decorating, stick a piece of contact paper on the inside of the garment.
Stamping and stenciling on fabric work best if you're working on a lightly padded surface.
