*I am always looking for new products to incorporate into my work.. Sometimes just out of curiosity, and other times, because I'm not completely satisfied with what I'm using.. thus this test .
After that, I misted the fabric with clean water to see what happened. Here is the result.
The 2 that were failures were no surprise frankly.... but sometimes... things can surprise us so nothing in the art store is immediately ruled out 'til I've tested them.
*Staedtler Permanent marker ( tested a black marker) did FINE..a winner
*Le Pen failed.. DARN! I love these little pens... they have a beautiful point on them but definitely NOT for fabric.
*Sharpie ultra fine point marker in a flesh color... surprised me a bit. It did not bleed out as my earlier testing with black markers. I'm always looking for markers for portrait contour drawings. YEAH.. another winner!
*Faber Castell-Pitt pen light flesh color .. a winner.
TomBow flesh color marker...almost completely washed out. No surprise but one can always HOPE!
*Tee Juice Fine Point in a flesh color.. a winner
* all purchased Ultrect Art Supply.. available in stores or on line).
You might guess... I tested these flesh colored markers for a good reason My next piece will have a portrait element to it.
