Sharpie Magic

Last year I saw a booklet that explored the idea of creating fabric dye using Sharpie Pens and I have been having more fun.  Previously I have used them to create lining for a vest, a flower on stretched artist canvas, and of course on fabric.  Here are my latest... Both are for challenges I am participating in.  The black and white was inspired by a cup and the Radish/Beet? are possibly for MAQ.

Left is cup inspired drawing.                            Right is after alcohol spray 


                            After some stitching but before beads.                       


These were to look like radishes but came out like beets.  Red pens changed color a bit with the alcohol.

If you would like to try this, just yell!  Pam

Just a note: Two of my fiber art - Pumpkin (in Gallery) and Layers were juried into the Placer Art League Open Juried Art Show - In cooperation with Lincoln Arts & Culture Foundation.
There will be an Artists' Reception and Award Ceremony on Thursday, June 24 at 5 to 9 PM. 
Address is Lincoln Arts Gallery 580 Sixth Street, Lincoln
It would be great to see you.  Thanks, Pam
