Tweaking a fabric color
I am making a landscape quilt - I found this fabric, it seems fitting, but a bit too bright.
I decided to try to darken it a bit - this is what I did:
First I backed part of the fabric with freezer paper - this will stabalize it and provide a water barrier.
I chose Black, Prussian Blue, and Dark Hauser Green, along with a transparent extender. I spritzed the fabric with water so the paint would be loose. I used a sponge to spread the paint and then kind of wiped up the extra paint.
This is the result - showing the difference between the painted piece and the original color.
We'll see how well it works as my project progresses.
