Painted fabric

These are sample pieces, trying different paints and designs.
Acrylic paints work fine, however the fabric dyes have a lot more
vibrancy. I have used a combination on these because I don't
have many colors of fabric paint.
Most of my day was spent trying to use a peacock feather
as a stamp, using black screen painting ink. I could not get a good
impression. Maybe I will just carve a feather in the rubber
stamp material. I just don't think it would have the light look and naturalness
of a feather. I dyed the blouse teal with the idea to stamp the black feathers
on it. I guess I need a new plan.
