How to Use Inktense Pencils with Angela Daymond
Classes with Angela Daymond • Educational, G, 01-Sep-2017
Angela uses these inktense pencils to create wonderful landscapes for her kantha stitching. In addition, she suggests to colour in your pre-quilted designs - even a feather wreath.
Anyway, back to the pencils - with the addition of water or aloe vera gel, the inks in these become really vibrant. Also, you can use them to create watercolour style fabric backgrounds as well a colour in your designs.
The pencils work on fabric as well as paper. And it would great to use on a project with the younger generation.
Angela was one of the contributors in Linda Seward's book "The ultimate guide to Art Quilting". And we have a short workshop from Linda too, where she creates the background for her confetti tree, which you watch here.
Moreover, this is a version of Paula Doyle's Itsy Bits and Wonky Strips.
