Techniques with Paint & Pattern

Supplies Students Need To Have On Hand:


4-10 fat quarters solid color cotton fabric — Choose colors you love and include both darks and lights. Feel free to bring more, especially if you work quickly.

piece of felt or batting approximately 18×22 inches

fabric pen — I like black Micron by Pigma in the 08 size, feel free to bring other colors or brands.

four to six small bottles acrylic craft paint (or textile paint) — Bring colors that coordinate with your fabric colors and include lights and darks. Black and white are always good. I like Folk Art brand from Michaels.

3 – 6 spouncers (foam brushes, sometimes called pouncers or stencil brushes, or any sponge stencil brush)

two or three “found objects” for printing — Consider small toys, kitchen utensils, empty spools, items from your recycling bin. Anything with a texture or pattern that might be interesting.

three empty toilet paper tubes

4 pieces of corrugated cardboard, foam core or styrofoam approximately 4×4” for mounting stamps

one or two sheets sticky-backed fun foam

freezer paper — one yard is plenty

scissors — small and large

sketchbook, pen and pencil

container for water

paper towels for clean up

plastic to cover workspace, a garbage bag works fine



exacto knife and small cutting mat

apron or paint clothes

drying rack
