Default Paintstiks on Fabric

Here's a quick pic of a technique I'm trying out. I used an oil "Artist's Paintstik" to make a rubbing on black Kona fabric, let it dry, then heat-set it (under parchment paper) with an iron to make it permanent/washable. I'll probably use this one in a small wall hanging. I'm also trying out some other techniques with the Paintstiks on fabrics to see what I can do with them...

Last year at the Bennington quilt show one of the vendors was doing this. They had special "templates" for lack of a better word to use for the rubbings. They had leaves and such. They were using Shiva Paintsticks which I guess are specifically made for fabric? Anyway the effect was very nice but they did recommend it only be used for artquilts and wall hangings.
