  1. Wish I could be there, Judy — sounds like so much fun.

    Question: When you use the Daler Rowney inks on large pieces of fabric, do you pour them into a pan and use a large paintbrush? Do you dilute them? How far will one of those little bottles go?

    Thanks for your time and expertise.

  2. Hi Diane,

    the inks go pretty far, I don’t dilute them unless I want really pale transparent colors, but I do tend to go through a lot of yellow, so that’s what I run out of first. Blick.com sells big bottles that are 6 times the paint for double the cost, so its totally worth ordering them that way if you like painting with them.

I love hearing from my blog visitors
