Hello Everyone!!! Today we are going to look at how to create texture on your image using blender solution and different types of fabric. We know that the blender solution moves colour out of the way, so when you add some Blender Various Ink (refill) to a piece of cloth, such as wool, denim, an old washer, hessian etc... and press the damp cloth to your coloured project, the image will take on the texture of whatever fabric you are using! This is a wonderful way to give denim jeans, woolen top or even to give fur that textured look.
Next I coloured 5 rectangles in B26 and gathered my Blender Various Ink and the face washer.
This is from the chux, once again, probably a bit too wet but you get the idea! Now I have all these samples, I'm going to put them into my sample book!
A tip to keep in mind is that if you only want part of your image to have this texture look, to colour and apply the blender dampened rag before colouring the rest of your image. The blender solution will have no effect on an uncoloured piece of blending card and once it's dried, you can colour the rest of your image as you normally would.
So what sorts of fabric do you think would make great textures?? Try this technique and add a comment below with a link to your blog so we can see all your wonderful creations!!!
I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial!
