Taking risks is par for the course as far as I am concerned. One never knows what exactly will happen and yes, there can be disasters but on the whole I think most things are worth a try.
This week I experimented with dropping drips of paint from a height on to paper, then fabric. Getting the consistency of the paint right needed to be sorted first, then the trial on paper, then on to fabric. I tried making the drops initially while standing on a chair then, because I am tall, just holding the dispenser up high and dripping. I like the result on the paper but because the fabric is absorbent it didn't spread quite so much. However, I still liked the result.
Trial on paper.
Then on to previous sampling on fabric.
Then it was a tense moment as I dripped over my two house pieces. Once dry I connected the drops with a tangerine running stitch (yes, more stitching!).
