I love this picture! I think the serendipity of our color choices is pretty fantastic.

I thought the testers were meant to be painted directly to the wall not onto paper. You are seeing the white edge which changes the tone and saturation of the color.

I agree about using the paint on fabric. I'd add a textile medium of some sort, though, to soften the hand.

I think the the wall paint will be very stiff on fabric if that matters to you. Hard to sew through too. Wall paints are formulated to cover over other colors and a full of materials that make them extremely opaque. They may even crack on fabric once dry. I'd sure test it first.
