I love it when interesting discoveries come along. That’s part of the fun of this artsy lifestyle. I decided to dye paint a large (1 yd.) piece of fabric for a background a couple of weeks ago. Normally I would paint with a 2 inch sponge brush, but because of the somewhat daunting size of the cloth, I decided to roll the paint on with a sponge roller. I used a sturdy metal handled paint roller about 4 inches wide and probably 1.5 inches in diameter.
I was very surprised and pleased with the results. Using the roller gave the paint on the cloth an unevenness of coverage that I found wonderfully stimulating. With the large open background the variety of pattern and nuances of colors happened (I think) better with using the roller. I sprayed water on to help the colors move and blend. Try it and see what you come up with!
