My first purchase was Neocolor Artists crayons. I 've used these at a workshop I attended several years ago and honestly forgot about them. These are nice and work well direct on the fabric or brushing on water for a watercolor effect.
Next purchase was Gelatos, pigment sticks (I ordered the pastels). These are so cool!! I honestly had not heard about them before....living in a cave you know! HA This is the exact set I ordered. I like the pastel shades
These are really nice...again, you can rub directly on fabric or use water to blend. And they blend quite nicely on the fabric too.
And a pic of my Inktense blocks. I bought these last winter in Florida and they are fun to play with. Really work well with stencils and you can add water to your fabric before or after (to blend).
One of my art friends in Florida, Beth, gave several of us gals this stitched flower so we could play with our Inktense blocks.
I use all three products to color Beth's stitched flower. I started to use a little square (left side) to document each product and how they looked with water or alone, which I will keep. But once I got started I just mixed all the products together!! And they each work well with one another. That's a good thing!!
We'll see where this piece goes. I need to do some highlights/shading/etc. to make the flowers look more like flowers!! I don't want Beth to think I messed up her nice 'gift' to us! Fun products and I just might use the blocks on my table topper I posted about last time! Hard to leave well enough alone isn't it!
