Comb Swirls 1

At first wanting to marble paint my fabric, I found that I didn't have the necessary supplies.  So I decided to invent a process to mimic marbling.  I made plain Knox geletin and put it in a cookie sheet with raised sides.  When it cooled, I applied fabric paint and used my tangle comb to create designs.  Then I put 10" square muslin on the paint and tapped it down with an old credit card.  I heat set it and cut it to the 9" square measurement.  Some prints I used the same comb swirl twice.  The second print was obviously softer than the first.  I am experimenting with adding additional textile medium to see if I can soften up the process.  This has been a wonderful learning experience.
