ATC--WIP

I thought it would be interesting to show you a before and after of this Neocolor ATC I'm working on. Here are two photographs of the "Before":

Application of Neocolor II on white fabric.
Painting blended with water. It looks really crude and raw, doesn't it?

I'll post the completed ATC tomorrow.

Do you have an idea of what it's going to be?

Thanks for your uplifting comments, Everyone! I do appreciate your visits, and enjoy getting feedback. Thank you!

Purple Paint, thanks for your question. Neocolors are made by Caran D'Ache, and they're watersoluble wax pastels, which look like crayons. It is used with other media, like colored pencils, as an underpainting, but I also use it with fabrics, and is one of my favorite techniques for creating art quilts.

See "Neocolor II" or "Tutorial" under "Labels" in my blog's sidebar located to the right (you'll need to scroll down) to learn more about this medium. Hope this answers your question. Have fun!
