This blog is a place to archive project processes and techniques from Painted Threads with descriptions of how work was produced. I am including comments that contain questions and answers pertaining to the work from many of the original blog posts.

I have had this black book bag for several years. Today it looked like it needed painting. I painted it with metallic textile paints, the only thing you can paint on black that will show up with out a lot of extra work. It is difficult to photograph, the metallic paint reflects the light from the flash so it is hard to capture the color.
