|My paint over the pattern|
The painting of the fabric is done in a special technique. When I read about bingata it said that two brushes are used, one in each hand, while simultaneously painting. We did not do that. Thankfully. But, what you do do, is paint in a circular motion.
When the glue is removed it then leaves white accents on the fabric (ex: lines in a flower or leaf)
I finished my painting early and was lucky enough to score a bonus origami lesson (I made several variations on the crane and then something she called a rabbit, I however don't see the resemblance)
So, while my textile dries and cures for the next two week, I'll keep you updated with various other island nonsense :)
