$ 320  

We will learn to paint on fabric using, Tsukineko Inks, Dale Rowney Inks, and High Flow Golden Acrylic Paints. Learning layering and shading, how to paint eyes, to bring your fox to life. We will embellish it 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 18” x 20” or smaller. My piece is a quilt so towards the end of class I will show how you can quilt it or mount it on wood blocks.

Materials Fee $ 30 Payable to instructor at beginning of class Includes: 

Fox pattern design, precut Prepared for Dye Fabric (PFD), Fantastix for painting, white fabric for paint or ink testing. The use of teachers supplies: applique fabric prepared with iron-on interfacing, tissue paper, matte medium, stencils, rubbing plates, stamps, felt, etc. Plastic table cloths. The kit will include everything you need except the inks and paints and I will have extras on hand. If you would prefer the owl, email me please.

Supplies Needed to Bring for Class:
White foam core board 30”x20”
A fine tip black marker
Paper and pencil for notes

Painters tape
A white plastic picnic plate to mix on should you wish to mix inks or paints.. I rarely do this
Acrylic watercolor brushes if you prefer over stick applicators
If you have Tsukineko Inks, Dale Rowney Inks, High Flow Golden Acrylics, and Fabrico Markers bring them.
I might suggest a table light such as an Ott light, the rooms maybe dark for painting.
