I'll try and keep this brief each day so as not to become too tedious
Starting materials - I actually do this on the ironing board, since it is heat set, hence folded cereal packet to protect the cover from stray paint.
I draw the deign bit at a time. Then 'paint over' with water, heat set by ironing, then draw the next part. The colours bleed really quickly. This amount of decoration at a time allows me to halt the process and fix the design before it all blurs into one!!
Finished painting and next steps in my next blog.
