I tried the Inktense pencils yesterday for the first time. They are fun! I bought this very textural fabric thinking I would try to dye it and see how it looked when it was dyed. Still have enough left to try that but it is also working for the quilt I am doing right now. I used the pencil to color in a part of the design. I than painted textile medium over the top of the pencil. Wow the color just pops after I put the medium on top. You can use water as you use the pencil and it makes the color more intense also, but I wanted a controlled application. I was afraid I would color outside the lines if I used water and for once I wanted to stay inside the lines. I just wanted the color in certain areas of the pattern. I suppose I could dip the pencil in the medium and that might have worked as well. Didn't think of that.... might have to try that sometime. Here is a photo of the design with just the pencil.
Here is a photo that shows one with just pencil and one with the medium on top.
Have a creative day. Janet
