Quick opinion needed

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Quick opinion needed

I'm doing a freezer paper stencilled tshirt for my brother. I've just realised I need to post it tomorrow for it to get there in time for his birthday.

I have a navy tshirt to use but the only fabric paint I've got is bronze. Would that be too 'girly' camp or just wrong on a thirty something straight male? It's only a small logo I'm doing so that lessens the impact. I can't decided whether it would just be wrong or not. For those of you on the Flickr group it's the same paint that I used for the 5 star tshirt last month.

DH has got a big collection of paints that might be suitable but they're for his geek models so I doubt I'd be allowed to use them!

Depends on your brother, do you think he would like it? If so then use the bronze. If not then swipe some of DH's paint.

Did I miss the memo for when bronze became girly? I thought it was purple and pink we were meant to worry about :D

Lol, I know bronze isnt officially girly, but I've only used that particular paint so far for girls' tshirts, so I think I've been influenced by that!

Going for bronze. DH pointed out that the logo I'm doing means he's not likely to wear it out much in public anyway, so it doesn't matter too much!

And I did tentatively suggest using his paints, but he threatened to use my embroidery scissors to cut paper with and I quickly shut up!
