Festival of Quilts Birmingham UK Quick and Easy Demos

Using Inktense Pencils to Create Appliqués-Students watch as I put my adult colouring skills to work and use Derwent inktense pencils to create my own appliqué pieces. You will learn some of the tricks for colouring realistic images and then adding water to turn them into beautifully shaded fabrics. Using the basic maple leaf I will walk you  through the process of creating one of a kind fabric, adhering a fusible web and cutting out the appliqué free form from the front.  Using this method you don’t have to worry about the bleeding that often occurs if you are colouring directly on a quilt.  Examples of other inktense created fabric appliqués will be shown.
