Painting on cloth
The beauty of decorative painting is that one can paint on almost anything by using the same acrylic paint and just adding the different medium. In this case painting on cloth needs the textile medium as an additive to the existing paint. I have painted on tea-towels before as shown in the earlier topics. Recently two friends Zubaidah and Yatie came out with a brilliant idea by asking me to paint on pieces of cloth and they patch them up to become a curtain! Here are some pictures of the pieces of material and the sewn curtain.
I am Zaitun Ramli, born and bred in Muar, Johore.Also brought up in Alor Star, Kedah in the early years of my life. I am a Decorative Artist, Teacher and Author. Been involved in decorative painting since 2001 and has never looked back.Decided that this is my career after doing various jobs before. Being a mother of 5, managing them, like other mums, you can also say that I am a Home Entertainer.
Recently on 19th August 2011, I became a grandma to a beautiful bouncing baby girl.
