I dedicated the entire year of 2018 to designing ladies’ tops and long cardigans and covering them with silk-screen and hand-painted designs. Now, you may think that’s easy, but in reality, it isn’t so. Many paints harden the fabric and make painted areas stiff. On denim that’s ok, but I wanted to create comfortable classy, and drapey outfits that would flow smoothly even with the paint soaked into them. Testing different fabric media finally led me to Chinese fabric paint which did not thicken the fabric. To enhance the painted elements I finished the design with 3D glitter. Pictures on this page don’t do justice to the actual clothing. And that’s not bragging but stating the truth.

Here are just a few pieces of clothing and the print enhanced with hand-applied glitter.
