More freeform fun, this time in warm hues

Here's another group of fabrics I hand painted using a variety of tools, like sponges, rollers, paint brushes, and stencils.

To keep the finished product harmonious, I used several hues that are close to each other on the color wheel:  fuchsia, bright orange, bright yellow, and golden yellow.

I layered the colors on top of each other to give the fabrics depth and extra interest.  

The best part of painting fabric freeform is that you can't really make a mistake! If you're not happy with it, you can always paint over it with more dye paint in a darker hue, or add another layer of texture on top.
