Heart Swell...or puff...

I've decided to do a series of small pieces using my hand dyed fabric and various techniques, all incorporating hand stitch.

This piece is starting with a heart stencil designed by Margaret Applin.
Using a palette knife, I applied a nice thick coating of Pebeo Expandable Paint through the stencil.  Be sure to keep the stencil firmly held onto the fabric so that you don't get any paint under it.  I used a temporary spray adhesive to achieve this.

Let dry according to paint directions and then 'puff' using a heat gun.

I'll show you more once I get to the hand stitching. Have a great day!


  1. So interesting! I remember puff paints from ages ago! But you didn't have to use a heat gun! Can't wait to see the results! ♥

    1. Thanks. I'm hoping to get to the hand stitching soon.

  2. I have used puff paints, but never like this. Can not wait to hear and see your results.

    1. I was working on it again today. It still needs more time before I can share it again.
