This is really fantastic. What whimsy! You will be styling, taking your groceries home in this bag. What kind of paint did you use?

Hi Adrienne - Just curious, did you have to use some kind of additive to make the paint permanent on fabric?

I want a spike tote!!!

adrienne trafford said...

i didn't...i tried picking at it and also put water on it and it's staying pretty good...i'm thinking it's just like painting on unstretched canvas right? i didn't put gesso down either although my friend who also painted on a canvas tote did. I just put a big black square/rectangle with the black acrylic paint (Delta Ceramacoat) and painted on that like i do for my paintings. The canvas is very absorbent so i had to layer the paint a little - a little more work but i like the result!

i can make you one...just let me know!
