What kind of paint do you use for embroidery?
Acrylic and fabric paints have a more intense color. These paints dry fairly fast, but you can mix and blend the color if you work quickly. The paint stays mainly on the surface, so if you work with a small brush, you can paint crisp lines right up to the edge of where your embroidery will go.
Can I use any brushes for watercolor?
Yes, and no. You can use synthetic or natural brushes for watercolor painting. However, you should not use your natural brushes with acrylic paints because the chemicals in the acrylic paint can damage or break down the natural brushes.
Can you use the same brushes for watercolor and gouache?
No. While you can use the same paper and brushes, gouache will handle differently than watercolor. That’s because on a structural level, it’s manufactured differently than watercolor.
Can you use watercolor paint on silk?
Many artists use liquid fabric paints, but hard watercolors are good to use too, particularly for fine detailing. Silk dye would work as well. … Be sure that you buy enough silk that you have several more inches of fabric than your chosen frame size, since you’ll need to have extra to secure around the sides.
