I painted this vest to wear to Suzi Quatro’s Melbourne concert at Hamer Hall on 18-02-17.
I planned to transfer the artwork, which was drawn with a heat transfer pencil on baking paper, with an iron but it didn’t work, hence the wonky text.
I used normal acrylic paints mixed with Jo Sonja’s textile medium. I also sealed the paint with this textile medium.
The silver studs were added, and prior to painting I did spray bleach onto parts of the vest to lighten the areas I was going to paint on.
