I've decided to revamp my Jill Valentine costume, because I don't already have enough to do, and I thought it would be better if I painted the corset I use for it rather than just re-covering it with fabric. This is because I have expanded somewhat since I last wore it (don't worry I'm not getting fat, but now I no longer look like a famine victim I am having to adjust certain things). And plus the corset is comfier if it's not covered.
Anyhoo so I bambled over to Hobbycraft to have a look for fabric paint, and found a lovely turquoise paint that claimed to paint on black. Got it home.
Long story short, it DOES paint on black but not with the intensity I need :/ It's sort of soaked into the fabric and is doing a lovely iridescent thing, so the colour is only visible when you move into the light.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
So I need to find another one now. Blargh.
