To create an individual room design has become very fashionable. Any piece of interior, made by hand, can be a highlight of the situation and give the room a unique sophistication. And this fully applies to paintings from fabric. If you harmoniously use / combine fabrics, the products will look expensive and stylish.



Features of paintings from fabric

Such things are very practical and inexpensive. So as to create a magnificent man-made work does not require large pieces of fabric. Remains of sewing, unwanted clothing from different fabrics - everything will go in turn. If the picture is made of a new material, then you should not waste time on trifles, because cheap fabric will look modest, and it can easily tear.



Making pictures of fabric is easy and simple.

The most common options for a frame or base are wood and foam. The selection takes into account that the wooden frames are even and hold the fabric better. The picture on the foam does not require a frame (the fabric is pressed into the soft surface). The choice is determined by the technique of making the future picture.

The fabric is tucked (so as not to be frayed) and laid on the bar. The material is fixed with a steppler. Then the fabric is rolled up and slightly stretched on the plank on the opposite side. Cloth nailed stapler. At this stage, you should try to avoid the formation of "bubbles" and distortions of the fabric, so first the material is fixed in the corners and in the center of the wooden slats, and then the tension of the canvas is additionally regulated, and it is most often nailed to the frame.



Similarly, the fabric is fixed along the entire perimeter of the frame. The picture is ready and can decorate the room.

After some time, fabric can be stuck onto the canvas. So the picture will support changes to the interior or the mood of the owners and forever remain relevant.



How to make a colorful picture of the remnants of the fabric?

For such products it is better to use foam. This technique of creating pictures came into the world from Japan and is called kinusayg (you can say patchwork without a needle). It was the desire of the Japanese to use expensive fabric from old kimonos and turned into real art.

To create such products using any remnants of materials. Due to the different texture of fabrics on the canvas creates a volumetric effect.

You can use plywood or cardboard as a frame for a piece of fabric. An interesting picture is selected and printed out on a color printer.



The figure is glued to the base. Parts of the picture are cut out of pieces of fabric of different textures and pasted on the drawing. To add additional volume, you can put pieces of padding polyester under the material.

The unifying element of the picture will be the threads. Multi-colored knitting threads are laid out along the contours of the pieces of fabric and glued with hot glue. If the threads are carefully laid on the borders of the scraps, you get a dense multi-colored picture. If the plot of the figure suggests the presence of separate air-volume sections, the threads are glued loosely.

Thanks to the technique of imposing fabrics, you can create colorful pictures of cloth scraps.



Tips for making fabric paintings

The material should be combined with the decoration of the room. If the textile differs in the main background, then select a fabric with motifs / patterns that repeat the pattern / color of furniture upholstery. Or vice versa, if the background of the material repeats the color palette of the room setting, then the drawings / ornaments can be contrasting details of the design.



The mood of the picture must necessarily match the style and purpose of the room. Pictures of denim will look great in the interiors of the Scandinavian style. A funny simple floral patterns are perfect for the Provencal design of the room. The children's room will be amusedly complemented with foam plastic paintings with compositions of geometric patterns. By such pictures you can quietly teach a child to distinguish colors and shapes.



It is not necessary to use only rectangular or square picture frames. A combination of pictures from different geometric shapes (circle, triangle, square) looks unconventional.
