Painting on Knits with Kennita Tully
Add color to your knits in a new way! Painting on knits is a fun and easy way to apply color. Try it with a freeform brush if you have the artist gene, or take the easy way out with stencils. The photo shows paint added to a few mosaic motifs. It's great for applying highlight colors to Fair Isle and intarsia, too. We'll explore working with stencils, painting by number (or stitches!) and freeform. The sky really is the limit. If this sounds daunting or too risky, consider embelllishing pockets or patches instead to really jazz up your knitting.
Material fee: $15 for paint, brushes, stencils.
