  1. Petunia,

    Yes, these techniques could work on lots of different surfaces. You may have to treat your fabrics before hand–for example, if you wanted to do the watercolor techniques, you might need to paint your fabric with a water-media type “ground”. One of the techniques is actually done on paper towels! That’s just like paper cloth. Experimentation is the name of the game here.

    Cheer,
