More fabric painting

I tried my new Trapsuutjies paints today. Here, I used them on wet fabric. They blend very nicely.
On the next one, I used the paints on dry fabric. I then lifted some of the paint with a rag. The colours are not that dark in real, but there's a deluge of rain today, and it's very hard to take good pictures. The tiny white spots are also an invention of my camera...
Then I used homemade stamps with blue paint. Before the prints were completely dry, I put a wash of magenta on the fabric.
The darker streaks you can see are not in the fabric. They're actually on the plastic sheet under the fabric.
And now, two mop-up rags are drying in the garage. But these will be for tomorrow, if they turn out nicely.

Love the colors in all of these. Now tell me about these paints... are they a textile paint?

Looks like you were having fun today. These turned out great. I wonder if there is a paint that's equivalent to this in the US.

I love the red one - looks like pomagranates.
