Cover the entire work surface with plastic.
Soak an old white sheet or a piece of white cotton fabric in water. Squeeze out the fabric.
Apply paint here and there with a brush, leaving white areas in between. Spray the fabric with water and crumple it up, disseminating the fabric paint across the entire surface.
Rinse out the excess paint in a tub of water. Now lay out the fabric to dry. (Remember: the sooner you rinse out the paint, the lighter the hue will be.)
Fix the paint in the oven at 150°C for 5 minutes, or fix the paint with an iron set to cotton without steam for 5 minutes.
Use pinking shears to cut the fabric into appropriately sized squares for use as napkins.
Lay the table for a celebration with your own hand-painted cloth napkins! With this fabric paint, you can reuse old sheets or other scraps to make napkins with a beautiful watercolour look. Shape the napkins into cones and tie with a piece of hemp twine. Write guests' names on labels and attach them to the twine. If you like, decorate each napkin with a few dried flowers.
