Inktense Pencils on Fabric

CCOM 1323 FRE04

Inktense Pencils on FabricPut your adult colouring skills to work, and play with Inktense pencils on white cotton fabric to create beautiful fall leaves. Learn some of the tricks for colouring realistic images and then adding water to turn them into beautifully shaded fabrics. After you create your appliqués, you’ll cut them out and fuse them to a background. Use your unique artwork as a wall hanging, as a block in a bed quilt, to create a bag etc. Learning this technique opens many options for creating flowers and shaded fabrics. No stitching required for this class.
