Hi Mam,

You may stretch the fabric on any embroidery ring that you can get in big sizes to keep the fabric firm for painting Or you may also tape your fabric to the base surface(floor, table etc) using a prime tape to keep your fabric in place. In the latter case, place a plastic sheet beneath your fabric to avoid the colour to bleed on your work surface. 




You can try fevicryl new soft acrylic colors

by using thin layer of colour or using silk colour you can avoid these texture problem, you are using very thick colour

water can be added to the colour in very little amount in the colour palette itself so the colour would not spread

if your fabric is very thin, you can select designs with outlines.

USE FEVICRYL SOFT COLORS. IF REQUIRED, ADD LITTLE BIT WATER.
