Zurako design painting
I finally bit the bullet and started laying out the designs on these kimono, which is honestly terrifying. Originally Zurako’s was going to be silk embroidery but 1) my embroidery skills are lackluster and 2) I only have three and a half weeks to the con. So I got some Jacquard Lumiere fabric paint, which is still a little stiffer than I’d like, but has a lovely color (this one is Burnt Orange), and set to work. The sleeves are almost done, and I should be able to get the body done tomorrow.
Then I have to do a billion gutta outlines for Paako, dye it, and get the gutta drycleaned….
