My BVCG Decorated Apron

Created: November 28, 2010

Our Guild created these aprons as a "Funraiser" project this summer. Many Guild members contributed to the alphabet design. They were printed on various colors of aprons (neutral, yellow, lime, all with black lettering, then Red or Black with white lettering). There were lots of areas within the lettering design for our own enhancements/decorations. 

Then we were asked to decorate our aprons for this month's (November) Galleria. Needless to say I had fun enhancing mine BIG GRIN. I used lots of different media, trying them out to see which worked best.

Interestingly enough only the neutral was a cotton fabric, the colors were a more synthetic fabric, making it a bit more difficult to color on. Coloring on the letters was also a challenge since the letters were printed with an acrylic, leaving a slick non porous surface. But where there is a will, there is a way...
