Painted Quilt Art – Step by Step

Supply List
  • Regular point and ultra-fine point black Sharpie pens.
  • Pencil and notebook for taking notes.
  • Approx a fat quarter of white or off-white scrap fabric for practicing.
  • Approx 1 yard of prepared for dyeing white fabric… OR 1 yard of washed plain white fabric(tighter weaves work best)
  • Fabric and paper scissors
  • Masking or painter's tape
  • 2 smooth white large plastic trash bags (like for tall kitchen cans)
  • A few paper towels in case of a rare spill
  • Bring clear focus color photos (8” x 10”) from which you have created your own drawing. For instructions on EZ Drawing buton on left side panel.

You might want to keep this first project manageable in size… i.e. around 18” x 20”.
If you do not wish to create an original drawing, you may choose from one of my ready to go contour drawings at my cost of reproduction. One drawing is paintable in 2-day format class. A second drawing is doable in longer format classes.
  • Bring pigment inks, fantastix painting sticks, and fabric markers you may already own. ( There will be time in class to pick up what you don’t have)

    Optional :

  • A white plastic picnic plate to mix on should you wish to mix inks; although I rarely do this.
  • Acrylic watercolor brushes if you prefer them over stick applicators.
  • If you already own fabric markers, feel free to bring them. They might be what you need.

Inks, fantastix painting sticks, PFD (Prepared for Dying) fabric, drawings, and markers available in class with arrangements with hosting organization.
