Lee Brown ntroduces us to the use of Markel pens which can be used for painting onto fabric but with toothbrushes!
Lee takes us through this interesting workshop on how to use Markel pens. These are oil based and create interesting pictures which can then be stitched into. Simple stencil shapes are made out of cartridge paper.
Markel Pens are available from Art Van Go www.artvango.co.uk
