After researching the best quality textile paints and some experimentation with fabric I've come to really enjoy creating these new images. At the moment they are in the form of hand painted pillow panels. You can see more at http://www.handpaintedtextiles.com/
I started a wall hanging recently and I know there are endless creations that can be made with these materials. After I treat the finished piece it's color fast and can be washed to dry cleaned.
