NEOCOLOR II

Water soluble wax pastels, my new find.
Work beautifully on paper, but was curious how they would survive a washing if used on fabric.


The faded bird was drawn on, then painted over with plain water, and washed at 40° - as you can see, he didn't survive the wash.
The bright bird in the bottom right hand corner has textile medium added, so hopefully he'll survive the wash - cross your fingers.
The white on him is the only part not done with NeocolorII, that is FW ink, well, and the black on the eye & sketched bits, that's fabric marker pen.
Good news, post wash, and he looks EXACTLY the same!
Yippee for textile medium!
