    This is the color chart from the Derwent company for the Inktense pencils.

    On my daisy, three times I went through the process of coloring, applying the gel, let dry and then washed with my fingers in a shallow dish. I was adding more details and depth of color each time.

    With summertime it was easy to put them on the deck rail and let them air dry thoroughly. Since I hadn't done any sandwiching/quilting with it I just thought I would experiment. I am very thankful to know now.

    This week I colored some blank areas on black and white fabric. When I applied gel, it sorta ran/bled. It added to my design but I figure I must have forgotten something. Do you know why it bled? :shock:

    Linda, I don't know why it bled. It hasn't happened to me.

    Was the fabric damp? Did you go outside the colored area? Was it on a flat horizontal surface? Did the ink from the colored pencil run or was it the black on the original fabric? Did you prewash the fabric...maybe the sizing did not let the gel absorb into the fabric?

    Oh! LOL I painted aloe gel outside the line. Silly me. Must have had my mind elsewhere... Thanks, Jane. :-D

    If you are interested in using this technique on artist trading cards, bookmarks, or doorhangers (I haven't done one of these yet, but kids might like to make them), go to this topic on the website:

    Izzy sent me this note:

    I bought the 24 set of Inktense water colors from a seller on Ebay. I paid $15 plus $4 for shipping. Since then, I have had the chance to go to a Hobby Lobby and found they had very little selection of Derwent pencils and they were more expensive. A 24 tin of the Inktense colors was not even available but reg. water colors was around $30+. I just received my set and eager to try them. Hope that helps you. Thank you so much for your tutorial.
