For our October meeting a quilt group I belong to, Contemporary Cloth Artists (CoCA), used cheap and easy stamps and fabric paint to enhance/create fabric. This is the same technique I wrote about earlier.
Members cut up foam sheets to make stamps, and used materials like bubble wrap to add intriguing texture. One enthusiast even used a silicone mat designed for kitchen use.
The grasses were printed with a foam stamp. I think the fish were, too.
This printing method works well for tee shirts.
Cut up foam, a wine cork, and a pool noodle section
The same foam stamp was used with two colors of paint. The piece is draped over a chair.
Everyone loved how easy it was to cut the foam.
This has a southwestern feel.
Here’s a phoenix and a bit of the stamp created for the grasses in the fish print.
Here’s the foam stamp for the phoenix.
Bottom line – art quilters just want to have fun.
