Learn to paint on fabric using Tsukineko Inks! This technique is like coloring in a coloring book, whether you paint within the lines or not. The Tsukineko fantastix, a polyester pointed tip brush stick, makes these inks so easy to use. Working with one of two provided images—a bird of paradise or dragon—you will use layering and shading techniques to create your final piece. Tsukineko Inks do not change the hand of the fabric, so it is still soft after painting. Also, they are permanent when heat set, leaving your options open to quilting or mounting your piece. Your own style will quickly emerge as you paint. You have the option to embellish your piece with materials of your choosing, fabric, tissue paper, stencils, stamps, fabric markers, distressed felt, and other mediums. We will keep the piece to a manageable size of 18” x 20” or smaller.
