Fun with fabric paint - fake Japanese brocades
- Ladies and gentlemen, if you can, please check your photo albums and
see if there's anything you'd be willing to delete, as we are reaching
our storage limits.
That having been said, I'd like to share some Japanese inspired
projects that I've been working on
http://www.geocities.com/gurdymonkey/blank_slate.htm shows a home
decorating solution to my new weird attic loft space.
http://www.geocities.com/gurdymonkey/orng.jpg is Neopaque white fabric
paint stencilled on orange dupioni. The silk told me it wanted to be
court class "boy clothes," so I'm making a hitatare out of it.
http://www.kariginu.jp/sozai/sozai1-1.htm shows some fabric swatches
from a Japanese company that sells reproductions of medieval Japanese
textiles and costumes for festivals.
http://www.iz2.or.jp/english/ is the home of the Kyoto Costume Museum.
Their online textile gallery is equally droolworthy.
And it seems Makiwara finally has a proper name.
