|Woven Textile Art Design Painting|
Textile art design using fabric paint has a different look than the other painting design that uses media in addition to fabrics, such as paper, plastic, or glass.
Design textile painting using fabric media will be able to help provide convenience for manufacturers of textile fabrics.
A lot of media that we can use to make a painting or crafts textile design, some use cloth, paper, palastik, glass, plywood, natural materials such as leaves, roots, bark, or other mixed materials.
Many types of fabrics used for industry, such as:
Acetate Fabric, Chiffon Fabric, Acrylic Fabric, Organza Fabric, Lastex Fabric, Nylon Fabric, Velvet Fabric, Polyester Fabric, Taffeta Fabric, Denim Fabric, Rayon Fabric, Spandex Fabric, Georgette Fabric, Viscose Fabric, Grey fabric Fabric, Polypropylene Fabric, Satin Fabric,
The different media used different design results are shown, as well as different ways of working that will be used, which must be adapted to each other.
As an example design that uses the medium of painting fabrics, many different techniques will work the way that we use to adjust to the conditions and character of the fabric that we will use.
Design painting for one type of silk fabrics such as silk organdy or organza, we can use several techniques.
For silk organdy still mostly covered with kanji, the characters feel stiff silk, not soft, more difficult to be folded, and usually silk with this condition need time to absorb the water. Therefore in the design process, sometimes watercolor alcohol should be mixed with a liquid that quickly absorbs into the pores of the fabric, or if not, can also be done by applying pressure or rub, but this way is slower.
Another way that watercolor is rapidly absorbed with washed silk organdy fabric before starting to make the design, which aims to be a layer of starch is reduced, more practical to choose your type of subscription fabric stores silk organdy kanji fewer layers, thus making the design will be fast, no longer have to wash away the starch.
Sufficient starch coating on silk organdy fabric will give us the ease in manufacturing process design, absorption organdy fabric for nearly resembles watercolor paper properties when exposed to water, all parts of the edge design motif that we make more neat and sharp This is because the density woven yarn that is used for silk organdy very high, but using a very thin strand of yarn and soft.
Actually that organdy silk fabrics coated starch much longer can we process a very soft silk fabric, or what we call silk chiffon.
To soften the silk fabric is we can do right at home in the traditional way.
1. Prepare NaCo3 Soda Ash - Sodium carbonate
2. Pan for cooking
Cook in a pan of water to the boil, once boiling enter 1 tablespoon of soda ash
For 2-3 liters of water. Stir until well blended, then fill up all the silk cloth soaked cloth while continuing stirring for 20 minutes.
Take a cloth and remove from pan then rinse with cold water to remove the starch layer was separated, continue to rinse the fabric starch is reduced.
The steps above may need to be repeated depending on how many layers of starch that sticks to silk organdy.
When the cloth is finished washing, the fabric will feel softer than before, but often the fabric back into hard and stiff again when it is dry, it means there is still a kanji that must be removed, therefore the above process must be repeated again.
If we've got to be more gentle silk fabric like silk chiffon fabric types, the working techniques used in the manufacture of the design will be different when the silk fabric was stiff coated starch.
Character type of silk chiffon more easily absorb water, if we are not careful design motif
be damaged due to the irregular absorption cloth. To control the irregular water absorption, water paints can we add a thickener similar clear liquid glue, this meant that the form of design patterns can be neat.
Different types of fabrics that different techniques are used, but other than that the expertise and skill of the designer to control the properties of the fabric will be very influential during the manufacturing process design, and of course, will also determine the type of design.
We should not impose a design technique for this type of silk that are not suitable for the technique. But if you are one of the designers who produce design is not based on orders, it looks like you will find freedom because there you can work using many alternative techniques.
For the type of fabric that easily absorbs water very irregular, you should use a design technique of painting with a fast tempo, and select the appropriate character design, like a lot of abstract design featuring shades and color effects. Use the effect of dry and wet techniques to anticipate the emergence of unexpected effects.
To create a Woven Textile Art Design Painting is still much fabric that we must try, but henceforth I will discuss in the next post.
