dreaminoncloudnine asked: Hey there! I was wondering if you would know any cheap alternatives to fabric paint? Or DIY fabric paint tutorials? I wanted white paint to make polka dotted jeans. Would oil paint work? Or acrylic?
I would use fabric paint. It will be cheaper and easier in the long run and you only need to buy one color. If you go to my Tumblr Blog home page you will see various categories that have dozens of fabric paint tutorials. But a good place to start is inspiration & realisation’s really good paint review here: www.inspirationrealisation.com/2011/06/fabric-paints-review.html Also, I have lots of DIY polka dot pants here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/polka-dot-jeans
