Review Using fabric paint to create your own unique fabric can be great fun and I can't think of a better instructor than Mickey Lawler.
Mickey's latest book, Mickey Lawler's SkyQuilts is a great way to get started.
The book provides a complete list of all the tools and equipment you will need as well as information on what type of paints, fabrics and brushes work best. Color mixing is covered along with ideas on the best way to set up your painting area. You will learn the difference between painting on damp fabric and painting on dry fabric. Soon you will be working on creating skies and foregrounds. Then on to special effects. Mickey has chosen 5 of the most popular painting techniques that will lend texture and dimension to your project.
Using Mickey's 'design strip' technique you will be able to make dramatic quilts using large, uncut sections of your fabrics.
All in all you will quickly master 12 different fabric painting techniques. The photos and instructions are very clear and easy to understand and are suitable for all skill levels. There are three projects in this book, Mountains hand appliqued , Beach Houses design strip and City Pillow this project uses a stencil. Don't be afraid to try fabric painting. After all, you don't have anything to lose and think of all the beautiful painted landscapes, water scenes and moody skies you can add to your fabric stash!
Many of the same techniques found in her books are covered on the DVD and you have the added bonus of enjoying Mickey's personality. She will soon wash away all your doubts and have you chomping at the bit to jump into fabric painting. I especially like the chapter titled Oh no, I Messed Up! Sun Printing is also covered. Downloads on the disk are in PDF format and include a color mixing formula sheet and a listing of tools and supplies.
I recommend purchasing both the book and DVD if you can. The Applique Society, September Mickey demonstrates 12 techniques that she employs to paint her remarkable sky dye fabrics, and shows how these pieces can be used to create wonderful, moody landscape art. She shares her secrets for mixing paints and metallic media and using brushes, brayers and more to achieve her special sky, water, nature and architectural effects. Three projects at increasing skill levels are given, and the galleries of landscape and patterned quilts made by Mickey and contributing artists show what can be accomplished using her techniques.

Jan 01, Merrie Jo rated it it was amazing. After taking a 2 day class with Mickey years ago I was hooked on fabric painting. Her first book, SkyDyes, has been my go-to-reference book. In that book she concentrated on showing how to paint fabric to resemble various types of skies. In this new book she expands that to include foregrounds, land, sand, green fields as well as blue skies, sunsets and storm skies.
Not only does Mickey show you how to paint fabric but she also suggests a few projects using the fabric to create not just landscap After taking a 2 day class with Mickey years ago I was hooked on fabric painting. Not only does Mickey show you how to paint fabric but she also suggests a few projects using the fabric to create not just landscape quilts but other one-of-a-kind quilts.
Her instructions are easy to follow and the book contains lots of color photographs showing the various steps involved. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to paint on fabric but it would be a valuable reference book for experienced fabric painters as well.
