    In a class with Velda Newman (where I first tried Inktense pencils and acrylic paint on fabric), one of the students dipped the tip of a retracted ball point pen into white acrylic paint and made dots on the back of her starfish! It looked "beaded" when she was done, but much faster! She used undiluted acrylic paint.

    I haven't ever used acrylic paint on fabric...only Pebeo Transparent Setacolor. I'm not sure I could get the same effect with the transparent paint.

    So many good things out there. Thanks for sharing.

    what is the difference in using the gel pens VS. using the micron pens that are made for fabric?

    I use a Emery cloth covered board under my fabric and the microns go on smooth as well!

    after looking at the BACK of her quilts that she had hanging in our OKC winter show...I was not impressed with her work...she colors after quilting..and you could see areas that were heavier. bled through, etc...

    if you look on this web page I have included here, and scroll down, you will see that they come in sets of 6, 12, 24, 36 or 72 and also you can purchase individual pencils. '

    Some of the sets are also availabe at Michael's, Amazon, Hobby Lobby and I am sure at other art supply stores and online. :-D

    the pencils do, but the gel roller pens for fabric apparently only come in blue, black and red!

    Is that correct? That is all I have found anywhere anyway!

    I've only found those three colors.

    The Pentel gel roller for fabric pen worked better for adding the tangle patterns to my Zentangle leaf than the Sakura Micron Pigma pens. The ink flowed with just the lightest touch. The Pigma pens are "more scratchy." However, the Pigma pens will work.

    Jane, my daisy is coming along. Will try to post an update photo tomorrow before my fun begins. I am having an injection in my right eye. Sounds like fun, huh?

    One thing I tried last night was brushing water on a blue Inktense pencil to make a light blue wash to look like the sky. It worked very well. :thumbup: I have a lot to learn! But, having fun in the process. :thumbup:
