DIY Prada skirt in progress

I'm in love with the Prada relief-yellow-rose print skirt so I gave it a first try ;)

First I dyed a skirt in a very soft pink, then I painted "impressionistic" roses (I tried to capture loosely the silhouette) with textile dye! (mixing the dye with water got the best results!) and after it I went for the yellow roses, using heavy body acrylic paint that I mixed with a textile medium for screen-printing. With lots of effort I managed to get the paint in a syringe-like tube so I could draw the roses out of loose hand.. clearly some roses look better then others haha :)the roses took about 1 week to dry!

I like the effect but what I really want are more puffy-foam-ey roses so I'm looking for another medium! I'm pretty sure I once worked with a puffy-foam paint (It looked very synthetic) for screen-printing but I have no-idea yet where to find it.. I think I might visit the printing-workplace at my old art-school to ask! (I will keep you updated!)

Interesting DIY. That skirt was also one of my favorite pieces from the SS12 collection. That and the pink dress with the black and green flames coming up from the bottom of the skirt. Oh, and any of the varsity jackets, of course.. haha. Can't wait to see how great a DIY you make of it!

At first I thought it was a shirt, I mean it still looks pretty amazing for a skirt too. I can't wait to see the final results and see what you wear it with.

I'm actually very intrigued by this. I have been experimenting a lot with dyes as of late (but on silk).

I love how it looks with the pink flowers!
