Paintsticks

I'm in cleaning and sorting mode this week meaning I've not progressed on the following art piece.

One of my friends who has been doing the same thing, delivered a goody bag of assorted tulle, silks, fabric paint and these Shiva Paintsticks to me yesterday.
In the detail of my garden piece above, you'll see an example of Paintsticks on the pink flowers. I use them a lot in my work for accenting. You'll find lots about them on line. They can be used with stencils and are heat settable on fabric.

Since I already have a package, I'm willing to share this one. It's been opened but barely used.
If you leave a comment to let me know you'd like to have them, I'll pick a commenter and send them on.
I'm connecting to The Needle and Thread Network.

I do so much dye painting that although I do have some, I really haven't experimented much with them. I am pleased to see your work with them.
