I am in a group of awesome textile artists - we call ourselves the Embellishing Queens. One of the experiments we are planning for this year is with Shiva Sticks (aka Markal). Carole sent through this link at Canyon Textiles. At the same time a couple of the gals on Doll Street Journal added some info about them too. Colleen Babcock wrote this post on her blog last September. Camille Pratt wrote a list of colours she regards as essential. This is what she wrote:
Must have colors (IMO), are the:
Iridescent Dark Blue
Iridescent Gold (an antique gold)
Iridescent Light Gold
'Regular' colors (non-iridescent):
With the colors listed above you can mix up pretty much any color you chose(remember the primary colors: Red, blue and yellow), and lighten them with the white, or darken them with the browns or black.
Thanks Camille for permission to reproduce the list here.
Patti Culea is currently working on a cloth doll with Shiva Sticks - find a link to her blog here.
Looking forward to experimenting soon.
