I was more going for allover vertical stripes. I've already painted one set, and upon doing that, realized that the allover garment is far too bright a red..
So on finding that and realizing the suiting I'm using won't dye (Tryed it before, failed miserably) I've either got to suck it up and buy new fabric, start from square one.. Or buy acrylic medium and thinly paint the remainder of the coat...
THEN I got to walmart and lo and behold, they don't carry textile medium anymore.
Our local fabricland went out of buisness, so it's a 45min+ drive to get to anywhere that might have it, or to fabric-buying possibilities..
It just doesn't work with no transport of your own. @_@
An acrylic dyebath might work, perhaps? With synthetic fabrics? I'm not sure what else to do besides suck it up and buy new fabric. D:
