    Fabric paint

    Which brand of fabric paint dries the softest? I need to soften a color in a quilt top before I quilt it.

    I actually saw on TV at some point in time where the quilt maker used a permanent colored marker to change some of the colors of the flowers in her fabric. Every fabric paint I have ever used dries really hard. Maybe try a marker on a scrap first?

    I use Inktense by Derwitt. Since it's ink, not paint, it doesn't affect the hand of the fabric.

    I also use Inktense by Derwin.
    visit Dharma Trading Company- they offer many options, paints, inks, pencils, dyes. I purchase a lot of supplies from them

    Tsukineko inks work well

    Used both Inktense & Tsukineko. Both are good.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I like the Fabrico Markers by Tsukineko. In a pinch and if you don't have a large area, Sharpies will also work.

    Anything that's an INK rather than paint. I use inktense and Seta colour paints (DHARMA)
