My Newest Hand-Painted Fabrics

This is my latest painting that I am working on for our next LULU DK fabric. Unbeknownst to most, I hand paint all my designs onto painters drop cloth canvas. It tends to absorb the paint well making it easy to navigate and create fine lines. I use water based paints and often mix in coffee to get a nice rich mocha color. We are also going to make this print into a matching wallpaper on a linen ground (a first for us!). We are so excited.

  1. Hi Lulu, This is just beautiful! I am going to send a link to your blog to our daughter, a student at Chelsea College of Art in London - they are mad about textiles and will enjoy seeing what you are doing and learning more about their creation. Thanks for a lovely blog, I look forward to reading more! Susan
