As we shared our knowledge of the paint stiks, I learned a new way of applying the paints to the brushes. Usually, I use a hard stencil brush, and rub it in to the end of the paint stik. Several others recommended coloring with the paint stik on a paper palette or plate, then rubbing the brush into the dab of color. Brilliant! You could do some color blending that way.
Someone started coloring this quilted practice piece with the inks, but left it behind. I finished coloring it with this strange color combination.
And I emphasized the quilted swirls on this piece, that I had previously tie-dyed with Setacolor paints and quilted on my Gammill. This could become the front of a tote bag or something.
I have spent a lot of happy hours painting fabric, but it was really fun to share the activity with friends!
