I just finished these hand painted Beachy Christmas stockings in natural canvas.
Update!... I'm interrupting this post from 3 years ago to show you my
most recent designs for 2014, all available in my Etsy shop...
please continue reading!
...these in red.
I started with plain canvas stockings...
don't forget to put a plastic bag on the inside
in case the paint seeps through
I've done many projects where I paint on fabric
and I use the same technique on these stockings.
I lightly drew an outline of my placement for the main designs
with white chalk which is then covered by the paint.
If any chalk remains, I use a dry Mr. Clean magic eraser
and it wipes right off.
All of these designs are nothing more than a series of dots.
I use the end of different size paintbrushes to make the dots...
for the backs I used random white dots
to finish them off
For the red starfish I used a paintbrush...
These are other painted stockings I've made in the past.
On these I painted the entire background
of the stockings as well as the designs
Update November 2014...
