Painting with a printer

In the modern world, there are many new technologies that allow you to decorate your home with needlework. I propose an interesting way to create a picture printed on the fabric using an inkjet printer. Take a thin fabric - calico, chintz (I think you can try silk, satin).

Gently cut the fabric to fit A4 paper, but about 5 cm shorter - over this edge the printer will grab the paper. To ensure that there are no folds on the fabric, due to which the printer can "zazhivat" paper, carefully iron the scrap iron. (photo 2) You can make several blanks at once.

Along the perimeter of the fabric, apply PVA glue (this is it, it remains flexible when it dries), carefully press the edges to a sheet of paper.Especially pay close attention to the bottom edge that is inserted into the printer - so that there are no protrusions, folds, protruding threads! Of course, on the sides of the sheet, too, nothing should stick up. Leave the paper to dry completely or, if in a hurry, dry it with an iron through an unnecessary rag.

Now copy the image you are going to print into a Word document (although if someone it will be more convenient to work with another program - please), place it on a sheet in the way you like. Before you print on fabric, make a test print on paper - it may well be that the drawing goes beyond the edges of the fabric (I spoiled my first picture that way). Verify the paper sample with the fabric, adjust the location of the pattern. Now we print on the fabric. Do not worry that the printer works rather hard - after all, it is not intended for such work, it’s our crazy hands that make it.

But the result is worth it! The drawing turns out remarkable, although the colors become a little paler.

A very interesting texture is visible, something like a picture on canvas.

Now you can tint a drawing with acrylic paints, you can put a cloth on plywood and varnish it or simply paste it into a suitable frame under the glass.
