Making Marks

On a Saturday in June two of our members; Maureen and Jenny kindly arranged a workshop for us on how to use Markal Paintsticks.
A whole day was spent making various marks on calico squares using Maureen and Jenny's extensive set of paintsticks.We used stencils or cut our own using freezer paper and the markal paints were applied using a toothbrush and brushing the stencil and fabric lightly to give a light shading appearance. We also tore strips of paper and used these to create a landscape type picture as well as a more random effect design.
It was a great day of fun and lots of samples were produced for inspiration for future projects.
