As my last ditch attempt to complete my idea I started to spray my duvet, and although the effect wasn’t as I expected it turned out quite well. The quote is readable, and the spray went through the duvet a bit but thats fine. The colour also isn’t solid, it’s slightly spread and held in more places than others, but I think the effect of this works. People strive for perfection and seek pleasure in getting perfection, and I think the fact that the text hasn’t worked out perfectly mocks that angle.
After a couple of coats of paint I think the colour will come out stronger. I’m glad I picked white as it stand out so clearly from the bedcover.
