Fabric Painting For Fun or Profit

Once you learn how to paint on clothes or begin painting on fabrics, it’s as though all other mediums take a second place. Painting fabrics can become a great (almost addictive) hobby and with a little practice perhaps a lucrative one. One of the great things about this type of painting is that it is something you can do from the privacy of your home. Another benefit is that it can be done indoors or outdoors using a small amount of space.

Creating a custom fabric is ideal for the startup or the seasoned artist. The use of wet paint on fabric is somewhat liberating as any little mistake you may encounter can be fixed; whether wet or dry. If the acrylic paint is wet then you may scoop it up and paint over it. If it is dry, you can also paint over it to make it appear as an original part of the design.
