I found 3 heart-shaped doilies in a vintage shop on the way home from Seattle. I knew the white cotton would be perfect to dye or paint. I love the combination of magenta and yellow Dye-Na-Flow paints, so that's what I've used on this one. I wet it in the sink, squeezed out most of the water, then dripped on the paints. I did use a brush a little bit, too, to blend colors and fill in the gaps. The colors are lighter now that it's dry, but that's probably a good thing. I think this is going to go on an art doll . . . .
