I told you that I've been going monthly to Charlottesville with a group from our area to participate in their Club meetings. April's project was stenciling on silk using PaintStiks. Our instructor had a different way of approaching the paint and stencil that left the fabric feeling soft and natural and unpainted which I loved. Rather than directly applying the paintstik to the fabric, you draw a line or several using the PaintStik ONTO your plastic stencil. Then, using one of those stiff stencil brushes you brush or move the paint from the stencil onto the fabric. I hope that makes sense...I didn't take any pictures of that process and since I don't own any PaintStiks it's not likely to be photographed.
