My Tsukineko Inks class was a large one with 25 students. In this class I teach two different techniques for applying the inks to fabric.
In the first half of the class we use a dry brush method with the Fantastix applicators that are dipped into the ink. Using the Fantastix pen tools are kind of like dipping a marker into an ink well and drawing with it.
In the second half of the class we use paint brushes, mixing the inks on a palette and work on light hand dyed fabrics.
These inks are really wonderful because they do not change the hand of the fabric and once they are heat set they are permanent.
I'll be teaching two classes using Tsukineko Inks in Houston at International Quilt Festival, November 1st and 3rd, I'd love to see you there!
