I’ve had this art spinner for quite awhile. In the past I used it to make colorful pieces of paper for cards.
I’ve been so into fabric lately so I decided to try using fabric instead of paper with those Claudine Hellmuth Studio acrylics. So I got out my trusty spinner and played.
You are limited to the size of the material since it needs to fit into the machine to spin. I ended up taping the muslin fabric down to the spinner with painters tape.
Then I used the Lumiere metallic acrylic paints and drizzled them on black cotton.
The problem is the size. The largest you can make is 5 inches by 6 inches. The fabric needs to be taped down or it will fly up and out – not pretty when it lands on the carpet or on another project! However, if you like to work in small, this would be a great project, easy and a surprise every time. The art spinners can be purchased in the kids toy section of most stores or online. Mine comes with funky music and lights which I disable, but there are a variety out there. And if you are into paper, you can make some cool cards.
Just another day of play at Happy Acres. Hope you are all staying warm.
