Paint Party Friday Experimenting

 Happy Paint Party Friday Everyone!

I am running late for PPF and I really don't have much to show. I have been experimenting with some fabric to paint on. In my on line Beadwright store I sell a microfiber called Novasuede. 
Majilite Corporation is known for a stunning array of faux leather microfiber products including Novasuede™ This high-performance luxury material provides superb comfort and excellent durability. Easy to clean and feels like soft leather. Novasuede has a slight stretch which is perfect to create with.
  Anyway I sell it mostly to beaders to finish the final step to backing beadwork and other multimedia art.
Most of you know I already paint on leather and so I wanted to see how Novasuede would take acrylic paints. OMG! I wish I would have thought of this sooner. It is excellent!
Soft, movable but sturdy. It really does feel like a leather.
This example is with the Novasuede dry.
Paint blends well 
This peace I very lightly spayed with a bit of water.
and the blending is even better. The water doesn't soak into the Novasuede. Also I don't normally use water with acrylics so my next step is to test a flow medium. 
When dried the Novasuede is still soft on the backside with no paint seeping through, so this microfabric acts like canvas does. I have some stretch frames so I will be constructing those and adding the Novasuede.
And some of this weeks art.

Have a great day and be sure to stop by PPF to see what all of the other artist have created.
