Watercolour patterns are applied to fabric, not by using watercolour paints as the name would suggest, but instead using silk paints. The patterns are usually flowing and brightly coloured abstract patterns. The use of Silk paint means that the fabric retains its soft handle and does not become hard, like some fabric paints cause it to. The end effect of this is quite de-saturated and the colours tend to bleed, creating an interesting piece of fabric.
